Officers screened 565 motorists who passed through the checkpoint. Officers conducted three DUI investigations with drivers who had been drinking alcohol and one driver was arrested for DUI. This driver’s blood alcohol level was over two times the legal limit of .08.
28 drivers were issued citations for various drivers’ license violations. 26 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. Eight vehicles were towed from the checkpoint.
The Oxnard Police Department Traffic Unit will deploy several officers for DUI saturation patrol this Thursday night, June 17th, during game 7 of the NBA Championship Series.
The Oxnard Police Department will conduct several additional DUI checkpoints and DUI saturation patrols during the upcoming summer months. The Summer DUI deployments will kick-off July 4th weekend. 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 (NHTSA).
