The enforcement operation began at 6 p.m. Friday and ends at 11:59 p.m. Monday, the CHP said.

For the period between 6 p.m. Friday and 6 a.m. Sunday, the CHP reported 25 DUI arrests and no fatalities in San Diego County. For the same period statewide this year, there were 490 DUI arrests and 14 fatalities, the CHP said.

For the same period in 2019, San Diego County had 42 DUI arrests and one fatality. For that same period statewide, there were 741 DUI arrests and 18 fatalities.

The DUI arrests are only those made by CHP officers, while fatalities are for all law enforcement agencies.

The CHP investigates all crashes on freeways and on all roads in unincorporated areas.
