On September 15th, 2012, officers from the Oxnard Police Department conducted a DUI/Drivers license checkpoint.
The Checkpoint was conducted in the southbound lanes of Victoria Ave south of Gonzales Road.
Officers screened 1345 motorists who passed through the checkpoint and conducted one DUI investigation of a driver who had been drinking alcohol. No drivers were arrested for DUI. 
At the checkpoint, citations were issued to 12 drivers for various drivers’ license violations.  Eight 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. Nine vehicles were towed from the checkpoint.  One driver entered the checkpoint and then turned across the center median failing to proceed through the checkpoint. The driver made a turn on Gonzales Road and crashed into an occupied stopped vehicle. The female driver and two female passengers were all minors. The driver was cited for driving without a valid driver’s license and released to her parents. The two female passengers were released to their parents.  There were no injuries.
The Oxnard Police Department 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 Jamie Brown at (805) 385-7749 or via e-mail at
