On 12-17-09, The Oxnard Police Department will continue its crackdown on DUI drivers this 2009 holiday season by conducting a multi-location sobriety and driver’s license checkpoint on Thursday, December 17, 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.

According to Ventura County statistics, one person was killed and 38 people were injured in alcohol involved collisions during the 2008 holiday season which runs from December 18th to January 3rd.

For the third year in a row, DUI deaths have declined in California, dropping 9.1 percent between 2007 and 2008. Although this is a great improvement, data collected by the California Highway Patrol indicates that 1,029 people were killed and 28,457 people were injured in alcohol involved collisions in the year 2008.

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.

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