On Thursday, March 17, 2016, between the hours of 7:00 p.m. and 1:30 a.m., officers from the Oxnard Police Department conducted two DUI/Driver’s license checkpoints in the City of Oxnard.  The first checkpoint was conducted in the southbound lanes of Oxnard Boulevard south of Esplanade Drive. The second DUI/Driver’s license Checkpoint was conducted in the southbound lanes of Rose Avenue north of Jones Way. These locations were chosen to provide increased DUI deterrence and in response to recent alcohol related arrests and/or DUI collisions.
The checkpoints resulted in the following:

 

  • 877      vehicles through
  • 750 drivers      screened
  • Three      DUI investigations
  • One DUI      alcohol arrest
  • One DUI      Drug arrest
  • Four      citations issued to unlicensed drivers
  • Three      citations issued to drivers with a suspended/revoked license
  • 22      total citations issued
  • Two      vehicles towed

The Oxnard Police Department will continue to conduct DUI enforcement operations this year.  These 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.
