Officers in Santa Clara County have arrested 72 people for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs so far during their Fourth of July crackdown.
The arrests, made by officers from 15 county law enforcement agencies, made the arrests between 12:01 a.m. Friday and midnight Sunday, according to the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office.
The crackdown ended at midnight Monday, except in San Francisco, where motorcycle police were to patrol until 3 a.m. because drivers tend not to notice police on motorcycles as readily as police in patrol cars.
In 2009, there were 95 DUI arrests during the same 72-hour period.
No fatalities have been reported.
DUI arrests in Santa Clara County are down from this time last year, according to the sheriff's office.
On Sunday night, extra DUI saturation patrols were deployed in Palo Alto, Los Altos Hills, Cupertino, Saratoga, Milpitas and San Jose. no specific arrest figures were available by community.
Residents and motorists are encouraged to report drunken drivers by calling 911.
