DUI Holiday Arrests Increase in 2013

The "Avoid the 100" DUI task force will be out again on special days in February and March.

Drunken and drugged driving arrests during a countywide holiday crackdown totaled 2,268 through midnight Wednesday, up from 2,168 last year during the same time period, officials said.

The crackdown by officers with the Avoid the 100 law enforcement task force started Dec. 13 and ran through New Year's Day in Los Angeles County. The figures are provisional.

The campaign by 100 law enforcement agencies countywide included checkpoints and "roving DUI saturation patrols."

Other "Avoid the 100" efforts are planned for Super Bowl Sunday in February and the following month for St. Patrick's Day.
