On July 26th, 2013, between the hours of 6:00 P.M. and 12:00 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 Saviers Road just north of Laurel Street and the second checkpoint was conducted in the eastbound lanes of Channel Islands Blvd. just east of Peninsula Road.
Officers screened 913 motorists who passed through the checkpoints and conducted three DUI investigations on drivers who had been drinking alcohol and/or using drugs while driving. Of those investigations, one driver was arrested for driving a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol and one driver was arrested for driving on a suspended driver’s license, being in possession of marijuana, and narcotics paraphernalia.
Citations were issued to six drivers for various Vehicle Code violations. Seven drivers were issued citations for driving without a valid driver’s license, three drivers were cited for driving with a suspended driver’s license, and four 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) and through the National Highway Traffic Safety 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
