After L.A. County law enforcement promised to increase DUI patrols, police arrested 177 drivers on Super Bowl Sunday for drugged and drunk driving. Police conducted the arrests from 12:01am on Sunday until 12:00am Monday morning. These arrests were part of the "Avoid the 100 Los Angeles County DUI Task Force" efforts to crack down on intoxicated driving in L.A.
During the 24-hour period, police employed DUI checkpoints and "saturation patrols" in the area. "Avoid the 100" efforts will continue through Cinco de Mayo, Memorial Day weekend, and St. Patrick's Day. California Office of Traffic Safety funds the program.
