Drivers beware: Law enforcement agencies throughout Riverside County are conducting extra DUI enforcement this Winter.
One of these DUI sweeps has already occurred.The Press-Enterprise reported that between Friday, Dec. 13 and Thursday, Dec. 19, 2013, law enforcement officers arrested 250 people for suspicion of driving while intoxicated. It isn't yet known how many of those arrested were in fact driving drunk - they have only been accused, not convicted.
Law enforcement agencies conducted a DUI sweep over the same time frame last year and arrested 230 people.
Police have said they plan to continue their stepped-up DUI efforts in Corona, Desert Hot Springs, Hemet, Palm Desert, Perris, Temecula and Riverside until early 2014.
