The Oxnard Police Department Traffic Unit conducted a multi-location sobriety and driver’s license checkpoint on Friday, December 9, 2011, from 7:00 P.M. to 2:00 A.M.    
The first checkpoint was conducted in the southbound lanes of Saviers Rd. at Bryce Canyon Ave. The second checkpoint was held in the southbound lanes of Rose Ave. at Tiesa Dr.
Officers screened 1,232 motorists who passed through the checkpoint locations and conducted seven DUI investigations with drivers who had been drinking alcohol.  Five drivers were driving under the influence of alcohol and arrested. One driver was arrested for an outstanding DUI warrant.
Citations were issued to fifty-four drivers for various driver’s license violations at the checkpoint.  Thirty-seven drivers were issued citations for driving without a valid driver’s license and three drivers were cited for driving with a suspended driver’s license.  Fifteen 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.
The Oxnard Police Department will conduct another multi-location sobriety and license checkpoint on Saturday, December 17, 2011. The checkpoints will be setup at undisclosed locations in Oxnard. They will begin at 7:00 P.M. and end at 3:00 A.M.
