As the California Office of Traffic Safety has named 2010, “The Year of the Checkpoint,” the Oxnard Police Department will conduct another multi-location sobriety and drivers license checkpoint Friday night, April 16th, from 6:00 P.M. to 2:00 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.
In 2009, the Oxnard Police Department made over 950 DUI arrests and investigated over 240 DUI related crashes in the City of Oxnard. Of those 240 collisions, five of them involved a fatality where one of the drivers was driving under the influence of alcohol. 80 of them were injury collisions where over 120 people suffered injuries as a result of a DUI driver. In addition, the Oxnard Police Department investigated a total of 2,195 collisions in 2009. Of those crashes, 621 of them involved a driver who was unlicensed or driving with a suspended drivers license.
So far this year, the Oxnard Police Department has arrested over 275 DUI drivers.
The Oxnard Police Department is committed to improving traffic safety and will continue to conduct these checkpoints and DUI enforcement operations in 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. Please buckle up, driver sober, and drive safely!
