Officers from the Chula Vista Police Department conducted a DUI Saturation Patrol on Friday, November 5th, 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 operation, traffic stops were conducted on 59 vehicles. 10 persons were evaluated for driving under the influence and 4 of the drivers were arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. One subject was arrested for a parole violation and another subject arrested for public intoxication. One driver was driving on a suspended license and another driver had no driver’s license. A total of 6 vehicles were impounded for drivers driving on a suspended license, without a license or driver arrested. 19 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.
Funding for this operation was provided by the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
