DETAILS: 

The Oxnard Police Department Traffic Division conducted two Sobriety and Driver’s License checkpoints on May 27th, 2010, from 6:00 P.M. to midnight.  

 

The first checkpoint was conducted in the southbound lanes of Ventura Road @ Devonshire Drive.

 

The second checkpoint was conducted in the southbound lanes of Oxnard Boulevard @ Citrus Grove Lane.

 

Officers screened 1,125 motorists who passed through the checkpoints.  Officers conducted three DUI investigations with drivers who had been drinking alcohol but no arrests were made. 

 

11 drivers were issued citations for various drivers’ license violations.  Nine drivers were issued citations for driving without a valid driver’s license and two drivers were cited for driving with a suspended or revoked driver’s license.  Five vehicles were towed from the checkpoints.

 

While working at the checkpoint on Ventura Road, officers stopped a vehicle as it was approaching the checkpoint.  Although the vehicle was stopped for another vehicle code violation, the vehicle was soon discovered to have been reported stolen out of the city of Fillmore on May 26th.  The driver of the vehicle, a minor, was arrested by investigating officers for driving a reported stolen vehicle and transported to the Ventura County Juvenile Detention Center.         

 

The Oxnard Police Department will conduct several additional DUI checkpoints and DUI saturation patrols this year.  The next DUI checkpoint is scheduled for Saturday night, May 29th, from 6:00 P.M. to 2:00 A.M. and will be held in the city of Port Hueneme.  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 brianwoolley@oxnardpd.org.
