On February 22, 2013, between the hours of 9:00 P.M. and 3:00 A.M., officers from the Oxnard Police Department conducted two sobriety and drivers license checkpoints.
The first checkpoint was conducted in the southbound lanes of Rose Avenue just south of Mountain View Avenue. The second checkpoint was conducted in the southbound lanes of Hobson Way south of Seventh Street. 
Officers screened 616 motorists who passed through the checkpoints and conducted eight DUI investigations. Of those investigations, six drivers were arrested for DUI. One driver was contacted by a checkpoint officer and was found to have methamphetamine in his possession. He was arrested for being in possession of illegal narcotics.
As a result of the two checkpoints, 21 drivers were cited for various drivers license violations. Seventeen drivers were issued citations for driving without a valid driver’s license, one driver was cited for driving with a suspended driver’s license, and one was cited for having open containers of alcohol in his vehicle. Eight vehicles were towed from the checkpoints. 
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
DATE / TIME PREPARED:  02/23/13, 0325 hours
