(Oxnard, CA) On June 30, 2012, between the hours of 7 p.m. and 2 a.m., officers from the Oxnard PD conducted two sobriety and driver’s license checkpoints. The checkpoint locations were: southbound Saviers Road just south of Bryce Canyon and northbound Ventura Road south of Seventh Street. 
Officers screened 837 motorists who passed through the checkpoints and conducted three DUI investigations of drivers who had been drinking alcohol. Of those investigations, one was arrested for DUI. 
Citations were issued to 48 drivers for various drivers’ license violations. Twenty-one drivers were issued citations for driving without a valid driver’s license and no drivers were cited for driving with a suspended driver’s license. Three vehicles were towed from the checkpoints. 
The Oxnard PD will continue to conduct 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 Maria Peña at (805) 385-7750 or via e-mail at
