DETAILS:

On January 24th, 2010, between the hours of 6:00 P.M. and 1:00 A.M., officers from the Oxnard Police Department Traffic Unit conducted a DUI saturation patrol. Officers patrolled the City of Oxnard with an emphasis on impaired drivers and traffic enforcement.

During the operation, officers conducted 108 traffic stops and conducted 10 DUI investigations. These investigations led to the arrest of seven drivers for driving under the influence of alcohol. Four of the drivers arrested for DUI had a blood alcohol level that was over twice the legal limit.

Officers also issued 31 traffic citations for various vehicle code violations. 17 of the drivers stopped were unlicensed and two of those drivers were driving with a suspended driver’s license. Officers towed 11 vehicles and the owners of the towed vehicles will face a minimum release fee of $494.00.

The Oxnard Police Department will continue conducting DUI saturation patrols on various nights of the week and holidays in an effort to reduce the number of alcohol related crashes and to make our community and roadways safer. These operations are funded through grants from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) though the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA).

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