Oxnard, Ca. – 776 drivers were screened while driving through a DUI checkpoint on June 11, 2021. The checkpoint was held at Pleasant Valley Road west of Saviers Road from 7:00 p.m. to 12:30 a.m.
Thirty-two drivers were cited for operating a vehicle unlicensed or with a suspended/revoked license and one vehicle was towed. No arrests were made during the checkpoint.
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.
