As the Memorial Day weekend is approaching, the Oxnard Police Department will conduct a multi-location sobriety and drivers license checkpoint Thursday night, May 27th, from 6:00 P.M. to midnight. The checkpoint will be held throughout the City of Oxnard.
During the Memorial Day weekend in 2009, the Oxnard Police Department investigated over 20 motor vehicle collisions with eight of them involving injuries. Four of those crashes involved a DUI driver. Officers also arrested 20 DUI drivers during that weekend.
Statewide, over 385 people were injured or killed during the 2009 Memorial Day weekend.
So far this year, the Oxnard Police Department has arrested over 394 DUI drivers.
On Saturday night, May 29th, officers from the Oxnard Police Department will join forces with other law enforcement officers in Ventura County to conduct another DUI checkpoint in the City of Port Hueneme. In addition to the checkpoints this weekend, several officers will be deployed to conduct DUI patrol this weekend in the cities of Fillmore, Santa Paula, Moorpark, Camarillo, Thousand Oaks, and Oxnard. All of these DUI operations are funded by grants from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
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, drive sober, and drive safely!
For any questions related to DUI and traffic enforcement, please contact Senior Officer Brian Woolley at (805) 385-7749 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
