California DUI arrests up

California DUI criminal defense lawyers are told DUI arrests up 12 percent over Labor Day weekend in certain areas.

California DUI Police officers, CHP officers and sheriff's deputies made 104 California DUI arrests of drivers suspected of driving under the influence in Ventura County during the fourday Labor Day weekend California DUI crackdown that ended at midnight Monday.

This is 12 percent above last year's total of 88 California DUI arrests during the same long weekend and down from 120 California DUI / drunk driving arreests during this year's Memorial Day weekend.

California DUI suspects killed no one during these times.

The multijurisdictional police crackdown on impaired driving will take to the streets again starting Dec. 12 for a 19-day winter holiday crackdown, according to California DUI lawyers.

The California Office of Traffic Safety funds the effort through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, said Senior Officer Humberto Jimenez of the Oxnard Police Department, per California DUI attorneys.
