Officers from the Chula Vista Police Department conducted a DUI Saturation Patrol on Friday, March 16th, 2012 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 60 vehicles. 6 persons were evaluated for driving under the influence and 3 of the drivers were arrested for DUI. One of the DUI drivers arrested was also charged with child endangerment. 1 driver was driving on a suspended license and another 2 were unlicensed. 1 vehicle was impounded on a 30 day hold for suspended license. 7 citations were written for various other vehicle code violations.

Chula Vista Police Department wishes everyone a safe St. Patrick’s Day and urges everyone to designate a sober driver before any celebrations begin.

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.
