Two Drivers Arrested at the Oxnard DUI Checkpoint
Oxnard, Calif. – 440 drivers were screened while driving through a DUI checkpoint on November 20, 2020. The checkpoint was held at Saviers Road and Coach C Lane from 8:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m.
Twenty-four drivers were cited for operating a vehicle unlicensed or with a suspended/revoked license. Two drivers were arrested for DUI and one passenger was arrested for drug possession.
Checkpoint locations are based on a history of crashes and DUI arrests. The primary purpose of checkpoints is not to make arrests, but to promote public safety by deterring drivers from driving impaired.
As businesses continue to reopen, including bars and restaurants, impaired driving remains a top traffic safety concern. Funding for this checkpoint was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
