DETAILS:
In support of the 2010 Summer/Labor Day Holiday DUI Mobilization crackdown on drinking drivers, the Oxnard Police Department Traffic Unit conducted two simultaneous sobriety and driver’s license checkpoints on Thursday September 1, 2011, from 6:00 P.M. to 12:00 A.M.    
 
The checkpoints were conducted in the southbound lanes of Rose Ave @ Tiesa Drive and in the southbound lanes of Saviers Rd @ Bryce Canyon Ave. At 10:00 P.M., one of the checkpoints was moved to the southbound lanes of Oxnard Blvd @ Citrus Grove Ln. 
 
Officers screened 1,887 motorists who passed through the checkpoints and conducted 2 DUI investigations.  There was one DUI arrest made as the driver was found to have alcohol above the legal limit of .08.     
 
Citations were issued to 48 drivers for various drivers’ license violations at the checkpoints. 30 drivers were issued citations for driving without valid driver’s licenses and two drivers were cited for driving with on suspended or revoked driver’s licenses.  Ten vehicles were towed from the checkpoint.
 
The Oxnard Police Department will conduct several more DUI enforcement operations this year.  These DUI operations are set up in 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 Officer Jamie Brown at (805) 385-7749 or via e-mail at Jamie.brown@oxnardpd.org.
