DUI Crackdown In Santa Barbara County During Holidays Leads To 151 Arrests

Posted on Friday, January 3, 2014 12:30pm

A more than two week long crackdown on people driving under the influence in Santa Barbara County resulted in 151 arrests, down slightly from the same period last year.

The “Avoid The 12″ campaign in the county ran from December 13th through midnight New Year’s Day.  154 DUI arrests were reported during the Winter Holiday Mobilization last year.

Officials say there was one DUI related death during this year’s campaign.

The final numbers could change slightly in the next few days, with some of the statistics still being finalized.
