DUIs over holiday weekend down countywide

COAST CITIES — County law enforcement agencies arrested less motorists this Fourth of July weekend for driving impaired when compared to last year, a sheriff’s spokesperson said.
Authorities made 270 DUI arrests countywide, 10 fewer than the 280 arrests made last year during the Independence Day enforcement period, Sgt. Jason Rothlein said.
Within the county, police recorded one DUI fatality, Rothlein said.
In the coming weeks, the Avoid the 13 campaign, which brings together San Diego County law enforcement agencies to enforce impaired driving, will begin a summer mobilization that will run through Labor Day weekend, Rothlein said.
