Avoid the 13 deployments arrested 45 people in Santa Clara County on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs over the course of Independence Day weekend.
Officers from 13 county law enforcement agencies worked from 12:01 a.m. Friday, July 4 through 12 a.m. Monday July 7 as part of a crackdown on driving while intoxicated over the course of Independence Day weekend.
Public Information Officer Sgt. Kurtis Stenderup said that fewer arrests were made this year than in previous years. "I think that may be in part that it was only a three-day enforcement period, not four days like last year," Stenderup said in an email.
No arrests were reported in Mountain View or by Mountain View police officers over the course of the weekend. The California Highway Patrol reported that the Bay Area had no fatal accidents over the holiday weekend.
The total number of arrests is provisional, as not every agency has reported all its arrests, Stenderup said.
The next major Avoid the 13 campaign is the 18-day Summer Campaign, which will take place in August and end Labor Day weekend.
