California DUI Deaths Decline for Fourth Year

The California Highway Patrol has announced a decline in the number of traffic fatalities involving drunk driving. The total was tabulated after a year long DUI and safety enforcement campaign that ended in October. It is the fourth year in a row that the figure has dropped.

Starting in October 2009, the Border-to-Border DUI initiative conducted by CHP sought to reduce alcohol related deaths and injuries on state highways. The effort included more than 50,000 hours of enforcement patrols, 240 sobriety checkpoints and 100 California DUI task force operations. A total of 1,900 arrests were made for driving under the influence in California. In addition, CHP conducted a statewide media campaign on the dangers of impaired driving, made numerous traffic safety presentations and supported Designated Driver Programs.

The Border-to-Border campaign was funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
