DETAILS:
On September 14th, 2013, between the hours of 6:00 P.M. and 12:00 A.M., officers from the Oxnard Police Department conducted a DUI/Driver’s license checkpoint in the westbound lanes of Pleasant Valley Road just west of Jefferson Square. 
 
Officers screened 655 motorists who passed through the checkpoint and conducted three DUI investigations on drivers who had been drinking alcohol and/or using drugs while driving. Of those investigations, two drivers were arrested for driving a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, one of which was nearly three times the legal limit and had family members and a small child in the vehicle at the time of the arrest.
 
Citations were issued to 16 drivers for various vehicle code violations. 28 drivers were issued citations for driving without a valid driver’s license, four drivers were cited for driving with a suspended driver’s license, and 10 vehicles were towed from the checkpoint. 
 
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 jamie.brown@oxnardpd.org
