The Oxnard Police Department will be conducting a multi-location sobriety and driver’s license checkpoint on Friday, January 29th, 2010, 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. Additional officers will be out after the checkpoint until 3:00 A.M. conducting DUI enforcement.

The Oxnard Police Department will conduct several additional DUI checkpoints and saturation patrols in 2010. 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
