Holidays are often celebrated with alcoholic beverages so it is not unusual to see drunken drivers and individuals during these times.
In an effort to stop DUI-related accidents during the Christmas and New Year season, authorities have implemented the Winter Holiday Anti-DUI crackdown which lasted for two weeks.
The crackdown, which resulted in 504 arrests, ended at the start of 2011. It included at least 38 special deployments in the area and also involved the Orange County Sheriff’s Department, California Highway Patrol (CHP), and police agencies.
These hundreds of people were arrested on suspicion of DUI from December 17 until December 31, said the Sheriff’s Department.
