Holidays cast spotlight on drinking and driving



Local police recently busted a dozen drivers for drunk driving, and they plan on catching even more through the holiday season.

From Dec. 13 to 16, the San Luis Obispo Police Department arrested 12 drivers for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol.

According to Joe Vega, a California Highway Patrol public information officer, the CHP plans to go into maximum enforcement mode during Christmastime and again at New Year's in an attempt to keep local roads safe.

"That means every available officer will be working though the holidays for DUI enforcement," he said.
