Authorities arrested 16 people on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol in the Sacramento region Friday, with police agencies stepping up patrols over the Memorial Day Weekend.
During the same 24-hour period last year, 26 people were arrested on suspicion of DUI, said Officer Anderw Bates of the Folsom Police Department. There were no DUI-related deaths last year or this year in the first 24 hours of the holiday patrol.
Increased patrols will be kept in place through midnight on Monday.
