Press release - New Year’s Eve DUI Enforcement
Published 12/29/2010 (all press releases for this day)
OXNARD POLICE DEPARTMENT
As the City of Oxnard welcomes in the New Year, the Oxnard Police Department wants to remind drivers to drive sober and safely on New Year’s Eve. During the month of December, the Oxnard Police Traffic Unit has participated in several DUI enforcement operations in the City of Oxnard and throughout Ventura County. The Oxnard Police Department has arrested 69 DUI drivers from these operations and the efforts of our patrol officers.
The Oxnard Police Traffic Unit will be conducting a multi-location sobriety and driver’s license checkpoint on New Year’s Eve from 6:00 P.M. to midnight. 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.
After midnight, several officers who were working at the checkpoint will begin patrolling the City of Oxnard until 4:00 A.M. searching for impaired drivers. Over the 2009 New Year’s Eve weekend, the Oxnard Police Department investigated seven alcohol-related collisions and arrested 25 drivers for DUI. Officers arrested 13 of those drivers on New Year’s Eve and the early morning hours of New Year’s Day.
The Oxnard Police Department has arrested over 950 drivers for DUI so far this year and has also investigated over 195 DUI related collisions from the beginning of 2010.
The Oxnard Police Department is committed to improving traffic safety and reducing the number of alcohol-related crashes in the City of Oxnard.
We also remind people to call 911 if they see a suspected drunk driver.
