Known as the "DMV Guru," California drunk driving attorney Rick Mueller dedicates 100% of his law practice to aggressively defending those accused of driving under the influence of alcohol. He has successfully saved the driving privileges of many clients in the past year alone.

Ventura County law enforcement took more drunk drivers off roads and highways this holiday season than ever before, an official with a countywide DUI enforcement team said last week.

From Dec. 12, 2008, to Jan.1, 2009, 14 law enforcement agencies arrested 470 people suspected of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol in a 21day DUI crackdown known as Avoid the 14. The arrest figure is a 5 percent increase from last year's 449 arrests and a record for Ventura County, campaign spokesperson Jan Ford said.

The campaign, one of 40 multiagency crackdowns across the state, reported no fatalities this year, compared with two during the 2007 holiday season and none in 2006, the year the program began.

"The lack of DUI fatalities this year is the best news we could have," said Avoid the 14 coordinator Cmdr. Martin Meyer of the Oxnard Police Department. "Our deputies, police officers and California Highway Patrol officers gave their best efforts over the past three weeks, and just look at the payoff."

The campaign, named for the number of participating law enforcement agencies, included three sobriety checkpoints.
