Officers from the Chula Vista Police Department's DUI Enforcement Team conducted a "Zero Tolerance" DUI Saturation Patrol on Saturday March 14, 2009. The operation ran from 8 pm to approximately 4 am.
This DUI Saturation Patrol was in a series of DUI enforcement operations aimed at increasing public awareness and decreasing the number of drivers who drive while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.
The operation resulted in fifteen Standardized Field Sobriety Tests being administered, six arrests for DUI, twelve vehicle impounds, and eighteen citations for various vehicle code violations.
The Chula Vista Police Department's DUI Enforcement Team is continuing its efforts to keep drivers in our community safe by detecting and deterring impaired drivers.
Funding for this operation was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
