Bay Area

More police on Monday will be patrolling California highways after 741 people were arrested for DUI over the weekend. 

Just after midnight yesterday, a 23-year-old woman ran into a pole, shutting down traffic for nearly 8 hours on Highway 17. 

She’s one of 15 DUI arrests made in San Jose since Friday. 

As of Sunday morning, CHP San Francisco has made 11 DUI arrests, 6 have been made in Marin, and Oakland officers arrested 12 people for DUI.

CHP says drinking and driving should never be the choice you make. 

18 people have died in DUI-related crashes this weekend, according to officials. 

At least half of those who died were not wearing seatbelts.
