Published 6/14/2010 (all press releases for this day)
OXNARD POLICE DEPARTMENT
On Sunday, June 13th, 2010, officers from the Oxnard Police Traffic Unit conducted DUI saturation patrol between the hours of 5:00 P.M. and midnight.
These officers stopped 55 vehicles, conducted 10 DUI investigations, and arrested three drivers for driving under the influence of alcohol. Two of the three drivers were discovered to have had multiple DUI arrests in the past and were therefore charged with felony DUI violations. The third driver arrested for DUI had a blood alcohol level that was nearly three times the legal limit of .08. Officers also issued 23 citations to drivers for various vehicle code violations. 11 of the drivers who were stopped did not have a valid driver’s license.
The Oxnard Police Department Traffic Unit will be out once again searching for DUI drivers on Tuesday, June 15th, during game 6 of the NBA Championships. A sobriety and driver’s license checkpoint is scheduled for that night in the City of Oxnard. These DUI operations are an effort to reduce the number of alcohol related crashes and to make our community and roadways safer. These operations are funded through grants from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) though the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA).
Please report drunk drivers by calling 911. 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.
