South Bay- On August 21, 2009 Officers from Chula Vista, National City, Coronado, the City of San Diego, San Diego County, and the California Highway Patrol conducted a multi-agency DUI Saturation Patrol in the highway corridors of the south bay area. The operation was part of the DUI Prosecution and Awareness Program funded by the California Office of Traffic Safety. During the operation, 3 drivers were arrested for driving under the influence and 5 vehicles were impounded for drivers being arrested and also for drivers without licenses.
This was considered a successful operation, both in number of impaired drivers removed from the street and in the amount of public awareness generated. The South Bay Regional law enforcement agencies will be continuing their efforts to keep drivers in our community safe.
Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
