DUI arrest results for first two days of holiday weekend

More than 420 people were arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs in Los Angeles County in the first 48 hours of the Memorial Day weekend, authorities said.
The arrests were made between 12:01 a.m. Friday and midnight Saturday as part of the county-wide “Avoid the 100″ campaign, officials said in a written statement.
Through extra patrols and DUI checkpoints, 100 county law enforcement agencies that make up the “Avoid the 100″ task force target intoxicated drivers.
In the first 48 hours of Memorial Day Weekend last year, 387 arrests were made for driving under the influence, officials said.
Officials also advise motorists to call 9-1-1 to report impaired drivers.
Funding for this campaign was provided by the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
