Published 12/10/2009 (all press releases for this day)



INCIDENT: Sobriety and Driver’s License Checkpoint
DATE/TIME: December 11, 2009
PREPARED BY: Senior Officer Brian Woolley


The Oxnard Police Department will begin its crackdown on DUI drivers this Holiday season by conducting a multi-location sobriety and driver’s license checkpoint on Friday, December 11, 2009, from 6:00 P.M. to 12:00 A.M. The checkpoint will be held throughout the City of Oxnard and is funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Tragically, 68 people died in alcohol-related motor vehicle collisions last year in California during the Holiday season. An additional 1,459 people were injured in alcohol-related collisions last year in California during last year’s winter holidays.

The Oxnard Police Department will have several DUI enforcement operations this holiday season including additional Sobriety and Driver’s License checkpoints. All of 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.

How to Report a Drunk Driver

  1. Call 911 and tell them you wish to report a suspected drunk driver. **You do not have to give your name.
  2. Give a complete description of the vehicle, such as make, model, color and license plate number.
  3. Give the exact location of the vehicle, including the name of the road, cross streets and the direction they’re traveling.
  4. Describe the manner in which the vehicle is being driven.
  5. Do not try to stop the car or detain the driver. Leave that to a law enforcement officer.

For any questions related to DUI and traffic enforcement, please contact Senior Officer Brian Woolley at (805) 385-7749 or via e-mail at
