PINELLAS COUNTY - Deputies with the Pinellas County Sheriff's Department "DUI Wolf-Pack" released results from the weekend's "You Drink and Drive. You Lose" campaign.

Deputies from the Sheriff's Office Traffic Enforcement Unit, and K-9 Unit, were looking for alcohol and drug impaired drivers. Deputies were looking for other traffic violations including: speeding, aggressive driving, seat belt, driver license, registration and insurance, and equipment violations.

Deputies issued 60 citations and made 22 arrests over the weekend during the operation that began with a briefing at 8 p.m. Friday and continued until 4 a.m. Saturday. Eight DUI arrests were made and eight DUI citations were written.

Three arrests were made for suspended driver's license; two for no driver's license; five for warrants and four for drugs. Eight citations were issued for driving with a suspended or revoked license and five for speeding.

The countywide DUI Enforcement detail took place in conjunction with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration DUI Sustained Enforcement Program - "You Drink and Drive. You Lose."

The goal of the DUI Sustained Enforcement Program is to mobilize every law enforcement agency in the state in a continuing effort to keep families safe from one of the greatest threats to our communities - the impaired driver.

Statistics show that in 2004 there were 1,610 alcohol related crashes in Pinellas County. Those crashes resulted in 1,193 injuries and 48 fatalities.

In addition to this " Wolf Pack", the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office will be conducting "Saturation Patrols" during the month of January in conjunction with the Sustained Enforcement Program.

For more information, call Sgt. Richard Nalven at 464-8170.
