TURLOCK, CA - A Stanislaus County Winter Holiday DUI crackdown netted 154 arrests, compared to 146 DUI arrests during the same time period last year.

From Friday, Dec. 17, 2010 to Sunday, Jan. 2, law enforcement officers from 12 county agencies specifically patrolled the streets for commuters driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Turlock police spokesman Sgt. Nino Amirfar said officials will be conducting more "Avoid the DUI" efforts throughout Stanislaus County and surrounding regions again during Super Bowl Sunday in February and again for local St. Patrick's Day festivities in March.

Drivers are encouraged to help make your community safer by calling 911 if you see or encounter a drunk driver on the road.
