The Oxnard Police Department Traffic Unit conducted a multi-location sobriety and driver’s license checkpoint on Friday, July 8, 2011, from 6:00 P.M. to 12:00 A.M.

The first checkpoint was conducted in the eastbound lanes of Channel Islands Boulevard @ Dallas Drive. The second checkpoint was conducted in the northbound lanes of Ventura Road @ Devonshire Drive.

Officers screened 828 motorists who passed through the checkpoints and conducted three DUI investigations. There were no DUI arrests made as these drivers were found to have alcohol levels below the legal limit of .08. A 46 year-old male driver was arrested when he was found to be in possession of paraphernalia used for ingesting narcotics.

Citations were issued to 31 drivers for various drivers’ license violations at the checkpoint. Fourteen 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. Five vehicles were towed from the checkpoint.

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
