On March 15th, 2013, between the hours of 9:00 P.M. and 3:00 A.M., officers from the Oxnard Police Department conducted two DUI/Driver’s license checkpoints.
 
The first checkpoint was conducted in the southbound lanes of Oxnard Blvd just south of Second Street and the second checkpoint was conducted in the southbound lanes of “J “ Street just south of Cedar Street.
 
Officers screened 390 motorists who passed through the checkpoints and conducted eight DUI investigations on drivers who had been drinking alcohol. Of those investigations, five drivers were arrested for DUI alcohol, one was arrested for DUI Drugs and possession of methamphetamine, and one was arrested for an outstanding warrant.   
 
Citations were issued to four drivers for various Vehicle Code violations. 14 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 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 jamie.brown@oxnardpd.org
