INCIDENT:  Sobriety and Driver’s License Checkpoint Results
DATE/TIME:  June 26, 2011
LOCATION:  City of Oxnard

The Oxnard Police Department Traffic Unit conducted a sobriety and driver’s license checkpoint on Sunday, June 26, 2011, from 6:00 P.M. to 11:30 P.M.

The checkpoint was conducted in the northbound lanes of Oxnard Boulevard @ Second Street.

Officers screened 940 motorists who passed through the checkpoint and conducted three DUI investigations with drivers who had been drinking alcohol. There were no DUI arrests were made as the drivers were found to have alcohol levels below the legal limit of .08.

Citations were issued to 25 drivers for various drivers’ license violations at the checkpoint. Seventeen drivers were issued citations for driving without a valid driver’s license and one driver was cited for driving with a suspended driver’s license. Three vehicles were towed from the checkpoint.

In an effort to show the consequences of driving while intoxicated, the M.A.D.D. (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) crashed car trailer was on display during the checkpoint. The trailer contained a vehicle that was involved in an alcohol-related fatal crash in 2008 in the City of Santa Monica. The driver of that vehicle died as a result of the collision and was found to have a blood alcohol level over three times the legal limit of .08.

The Oxnard Police Department will conduct several more DUI enforcement operations this year. 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. These DUI enforcement operations are funded by grants 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
