‘AVOID the 12' conducted a sobriety and driver's license checkpoint on Friday, May 24th and Saturday May 25th between 8:00 PM and 3:00 AM in the 400 block of Chapala Street in the City of Santa Barbara. This operation was to kick off the Memorial Day Holiday DUI Enforcement Weekend. Officers from the Alcohol Beverage and Control (ABC), Guadalupe, Lompoc, Santa Maria and UCSB Police Departments worked along side deputies from the Santa Barbara Sheriff's Office at the sobriety checkpoint. Here are the results of the checkpoint:

Vehicles Screened: 601
DUI Arrests: 3
Driving Without a Valid Driver's License: 4
Driving with a suspended driver's license: 1
Vehicles Impounded for 30 days: 1
Vehicles Impounded for 1 day: 3
Miscellaneous citations: 4

Sara Andrew (11-28-87) of Santa Barbara was arrested for DUI.

Peter Boyd (08-31-90) of Santa Barbara was arrested for DUI.

Jasmine Hayes (07-18-89) of Carpinteria was arrested for DUI.

Over the course of the Memorial Day holiday weekend, extra DUI Saturation Patrols will be deployed in the cities of Goleta, Guadalupe, Lompoc, Santa Barbara, Santa Maria and the UCSB campus.

The national "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" crackdown is led by the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS), with the California Avoid DUI Task Force Campaign combining high-visibility enforcement and heightened public awareness and impaired driving deterrence through publicity.

‘AVOID the 12' is named for the 12 Law Enforcement agencies within Santa Barbara County that work together to combat DUI driving. Funding for the Avoid DUI Task Force is by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The Avoid Task Force will deploy checkpoints and DUI patrols next during the Independence Day Holiday and for the summer August/Labor Day DUI Mobilization.
