Officers from the Chula Vista Police Department conducted a DUI Saturation Patrol on Saturday, October 9th, 2010 within the City of Chula Vista.

The DUI Saturation Patrol was aimed at increasing public awareness, decreasing the number of drivers who drive while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs as well as insuring drivers have a valid driver’s license.

During this San Diego California DUI operation, traffic stops were conducted on 46 vehicles. 6 persons were evaluated for driving under the influence and 1 of the drivers was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol. A driver and passenger were cited for open alcohol containers in a vehicle. 1 driver was driving on a suspended license and another driver had no driver’s license. A total of 3 vehicles were impounded for drivers driving on a suspended license, without a license or driver arrested. 10 additional citations were written for various other vehicle code violations.

This was considered a successful DUI Saturation Patrol. The Chula Vista Police Department is continuing its efforts to keep our community safe by detecting and deterring impaired drivers. The Chula Vista Police Department is asking for the public’s continued assistance throughout the year to Report Drunk Drivers – Call 9-1-1.
