There have been two fatal collisions in the Bay Area since the CHP's maximum enforcement period began. There were two fatalities reported last year during the same reporting period, according to California DUI attorneys.

Statewide, CHP officers have arrested 940 drivers for California DUI - driving under the influence.

California DUI arrests in California are down from last year's total of 1,045 for the same period.

Halfway through the Memorial Day weekend Riverside authorities Monday reported that a large number of California DUI arrests have been made.

Beginning at 12:01 a.m. Friday through midnight Saturday authorities report that California DUI officers representing 30 county law enforcement agencies have arrested at least 61 individuals for suspected California DUI - driving under the influence of alcohol and or drugs. No fatal collisions related to California DUI violations have so far been reported in the county.

California DUI Police credit the number of suspected California DUI / drunk drivers taken off the street to the combined efforts of California DUI sobriety checkpoints, special California DUI saturation and routine California DUI patrols in the Riverside County AVOID DUI campaign, according to California DUI Drunk Driving attorneys.

California DUI / drunk driving saturation patrols will continue patrolling the county throughout Monday, May 26. And CHP is stepping up its anti-DUI efforts as well, per California DUI Drunk Driving lawyers.
