On Friday, December 19, 2014, between the hours of 8:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m., officers from the Oxnard Police Department conducted two DUI/Driver’s license checkpoints in the City of Oxnard. The first checkpoint was conducted in the westbound lanes of Gonzales Road west of Snow Avenue and the second checkpoint was conducted in the southbound lanes of Victoria Avenue south of Gonzales Road. These locations were chosen to provide increased DUI deterrence and in response to recent alcohol related arrests and/or DUI collisions.
The checkpoints resulted in the following statistics:
· 1,036 Vehicles through
· 826 Drivers screened
· 5 DUI investigations
· 2 DUI alcohol arrests
· 2 Criminal arrests
· 15 Citations issued to unlicensed drivers
· 2 Citations issued to drivers with a suspended/revoked driver’s license
· 29 Total citations issued
· 5 Vehicles towed
Four of the five DUI investigations and the two DUI arrests occurred at the Victoria Avenue checkpoint. One of the drivers arrested for DUI was also charged with possession of narcotics. Another driver was arrested for an outstanding misdemeanor warrant and was also driving with a suspended driver’s license.
The Oxnard Police Department will continue to conduct DUI enforcement operations this year. These operations are an effort to reduce the number of alcohol related crashes and to make our roadways and community safer. We also remind people that if they see an impaired driver to dial 911. These DUI enforcement operations are funded by grants from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) and through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
