DETAILS:
The Oxnard Police Department Traffic Unit conducted a multi-location sobriety and driver’s license checkpoint on Friday, November 18, 2011, from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m.    
 
The first checkpoint was conducted in the westbound lanes of Pleasant Valley Road at Longfellow Way.  The second checkpoint was held in the southbound lanes of Oxnard Boulevard (SR-1), south of Vineyard Avenue (SR-232).
 
Officers screened 1,279 motorists who passed through the checkpoint locations and conducted five DUI investigations with drivers who had been drinking alcohol.  Three drivers were found to have been driving under the influence of alcohol and were arrested. One driver was arrested for an outstanding warrant.
 
Citations were issued to 48 drivers for various drivers’ license violations at the checkpoint.  Forty-four drivers were issued citations for driving without a valid driver’s license and four drivers were cited for driving with a suspended driver’s license. Thirteen drivers were cited for other violations, including one who was cited for driving with open bottles of alcohol in her vehicle. Twenty-one vehicles were towed from the checkpoint.
 
The Oxnard Police Department will continue to conduct DUI enforcement operations in an effort to reduce the number of alcohol related collisions on our roadways. 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 Jamie Brown at (805) 385-7749 or via e-mail at Jamie.brown@oxnardpd.org.
