RENO, Nev. (KRNV & -- The Washoe County Sheriff's Office joined the Nevada Highway Patrol, Reno Police Department and Sparks Police Department in a two-week "Joining Forces" DUI Enforcement campaign earlier this month.

From June 28 through July 12, 2013, the Sheriff's Office and other participating agencies conducted saturation patrols and a DUI checkpoint on the 4th of July.

Sheriff's Office patrol staff assigned to this DUI Campaign initiated approximately 170 traffic stops. Although a driver may be stopped for one violation, several other violations may be observed during the subsequent investigation, making it possible that a driver may be issued citations for numerous violations. The total number of citations and warnings issued during this event was 234.

Of those stopped by the Sheriff’s Office, four drivers were arrested for DUI, one was arrested on felony drug charges and five were arrested on fugitive charges.

Other citations issued by the Sheriff's Office included:

90 speeding citations
3 cell phone citations
6 citations for driver's license related violations
11 motor vehicle registration citations
25 vehicle equipment citations
1 seat belt citation
1 child seat citation
35 citations for failure to show proof of insurance
1 citation for failing to yield the right of way
7 citations for running a red light

Additional citations and written warnings totaled 44.

Only 3 cell phone violations? That is pretty low. And irritating.
