The Independence Day Weekend DUI crackdown is a success so far here in Sacramento County.

Various law enforcement agencies are working together this holiday weekend to keep the roadways safe from drunken drivers. From midnight Wednesday to midnight Thursday officers representing 17 county law enforcement agencies arrested 36 people for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Folsom Police Officer Andrew Bates said there were officers out just looking for impaired drivers. Those officers don't answer other calls or look for other types of crime. 

Last year 54 people were arrested during the same time period.
