This is the fourth year a Saturation Patrol was conducted. Compared to previous years, this year’s detail had an increase in vehicle stops but the percentage of intoxicated drivers remained comparably the same. The data from this year’s detail indicates that approximately 5% of the motorists stopped were intoxicated, whereas in previous years we have seen data as high as 20% of the motorists stopped were intoxicated.
