125 law enforcement agencies coordinating efforts to curb driving under influence

Law enforcement agencies throughout the Bay Area have arrested 1,075 people for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol this holiday season.

The 125 law enforcement agencies will continue their efforts through New Year's Day.

During last year's Winter AVOID campaign, there were 3,261 DUI arrests and one fatal crash.
