CHP busy with California DUI cases over weekend

California drunk driving criminal defense lawyers at www.SanDiegoDUIhelp.com say California Highway Patrol officers made a significant amount of arrests Friday and Saturday nights during their increased patrol of California DUI - driving-under-the- influence offenders.

Eight California DUI patrol units arrested 20 individuals in Oroville Friday night and 32 in Chico Saturday night, as part of the Rapid Apprehension of Impaired Drivers program.

The program uses grant-funded overtime to increase the number of officers on patrol and deploy them to locations that have historically seen a high incidence of DUI traffic accidents, according to California drunk driving criminal defense lawyers.

Other cities where California DUI deployments have occurred include South Sacramento, Stockton, Auburn and South Lake Tahoe, California DUI attorneys say.
