On December 31st, between the hours of 6:00 P.M. and 4:00 A.M., several officers from the Oxnard Police Department Traffic Unit will be conducting DUI saturation patrol. These officers will patrol the City of Oxnard with an emphasis on impaired drivers and traffic enforcement.

The Oxnard Police Department would like to remind those people who choose to celebrate New Year’s Eve with alcohol to drink responsibly. Designate a sober driver, call a friend, or call a taxi cab to get you home. The average fine amount for a first time DUI arrest in Ventura County is $13,500.

“OVER THE LIMIT, UNDER ARREST” is all around the state. If you choose to Drink and Drive on New Year’s Eve, expect to welcome 2010 behind bars.

The Oxnard Police Department has conducted several DUI enforcement operations this holiday season including DUI checkpoints, DUI warrant services, and court operations targeting drivers who became unlicensed following a DUI arrest. These operations are funded through grants from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) though the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA). 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 enforcement and traffic enforcement, please contact Senior Officer Brian Woolley at (805) 385-7749 or via e-mail at
