On Friday, September 18, 2015, between the hours of 8:00 p.m. and 2:00 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 southbound lanes of Vineyard Avenue south of Forest Park Boulevard. The second checkpoint was conducted in the southbound lane of “H” Street south of Glenwood Drive. 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:
· 550 vehicles through
· 550 drivers screened
· Three DUI investigations
· Two DUI alcohol arrests
· Eight citations issued to unlicensed drivers
· One citation issued to a driver with a suspended/revoked license
· 19 total citations issued
· Three vehicles towed
All three of the DUI investigations took place on Vineyard Avenue. One of the DUI drivers, a 26 year-old female, was in possession of an open can of beer when she entered the checkpoint.
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.
For any questions related to DUI and traffic enforcement, please contact Senior Officer Jamie Brown at (805) 385-7749 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
