DUI Checkpoint Nets One Arrest
Oxnard Police Department Traffic Unit conducted a DUI/Drivers License checkpoint on May 25th, at w/b Pleasant Valley Road @ “C” St and s/b Oxnard Blvd @ Eighth St between the hours of 6:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m. Checkpoints are placed in locations that have the greatest opportunity for achieving drunk and drugged driving deterrence and provide the greatest safety for officers and the public. 
This DUI/Drivers License checkpoint lowers DUI deaths and injuries.  A major component of these checkpoints is the deterrent effects it has on those who might drive drunk or drugged impaired. This also creates an awareness and encourages everyone to use sober designated drivers. 
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), checkpoints have provided the most effective documented results of any of the DUI enforcement strategies, while also yielding considerable cost savings of $6 for every $1 spent.
