The latest patrols were part of an 18-day countywide crackdown on motorists who were driving while intoxicated. Law enforcement agencies sought DUI drivers during routine and saturation patrols as well as DUI checkpoints.

The high-enforcement period, which ended Monday, yielded 2,313 DUI-related arrests, which is up 215 from 2012, according to county officials.
