The Oxnard Police Department Traffic Division conducted a DUI/Drivers License checkpoint on October 26, 2012, from 9:00 P.M. to 3:00 A.M.   
The checkpoint was conducted in the northbound lanes of Ventura Road at Seventh Street.
Officers screened 580 motorists who passed through the checkpoint. Officers conducted four DUI investigations that lead to the arrest of four drivers for DUI. One of those drivers was also arrested for an outstanding misdemeanor DUI warrant.
Six drivers were issued citations for various drivers’ license violations.  Six vehicles were towed and the owners of those vehicles will face a minimum tow fee of 241.00.  Six drivers were issued citations for driving without a valid driver’s license and 1 driver was cited for driving with a suspended or revoked driver’s license.
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. The checkpoints are funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) through the National Highway Transportation Administration.
