On Friday, April 15, 2016 between the hours of 8 p.m. and 3 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 Rose Avenue south of Tiesa Lane. The second checkpoint was conducted in the southbound lanes of Saviers Road south of Bryce Canyon Avenue. 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:
- 806 vehicles through
- 685 drivers screened
- One DUI investigation
- One DUI alcohol arrest
- Seven citations issued to unlicensed drivers
- Three citations issued to drivers with a suspended/revoked license
- 26 total citations issued
- Six vehicles were 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.
