The Oxnard Police Department Traffic Division conducted two Sobriety and Drivers License checkpoints on March 20th, 2010, from 8:00 P.M. to 2:00 A.M.

The first checkpoint was conducted in the southbound lanes of Rose Avenue @ First Street.

The second checkpoint was conducted in the northbound lanes of Oxnard Boulevard @ Second Street.

Officers screened 705 motorists who passed through the checkpoints. Officers conducted seven DUI investigations that lead to the arrest of six drivers for DUI. One of these drivers was under the age of 21.

26 drivers were issued citations for various drivers license violations. 27 vehicles were towed and the owners of those vehicles will face a minimum tow fee of $494.00. 25 drivers were issued citations for driving without a valid drivers license and one driver was cited for driving with a suspended or revoked drivers license.

The Oxnard Police Department will conduct several additional DUI checkpoints and DUI saturation patrols this year. These DUI 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. The checkpoints are funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) through the National Highway Transportation Administration.

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