    The Road to Tyranny by Don Jans

    DUI/Driver License Checkpoint Planned for April 26, 2019

    The Camarillo Police Department will be conducting a DUI/Driver’s License Checkpoint on April 26, 2019, at an undisclosed location within the city limits between the hours of 8:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m.

    DUI Checkpoints like this one are placed in locations based on collision statistics and frequency of DUI arrests. Officers will be looking for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment, with officers checking drivers for proper licensing.

    The Camarillo Police Department reminds drivers that “DUI Doesn’t Just Mean Booze.” If you take prescription drugs, particularly those with a driving or operating machinery warning on the label, you might be impaired enough to get a DUI. Marijuana can also be impairing, especially in combination with alcohol or other drugs, and can result in a DUI.

    In 2017, 1,120 people were killed in alcohol-involved crashes on California roads. Last year the Camarillo Police Department investigated 70 DUI collisions which have claimed 2 lives and resulted in another 26 injuries.

    The Camarillo Police Department offers these reminders to ensure you have a safe night of fun that doesn’t involve a DUI:

    • Always use a designated sober driver – a friend who is not drinking, ride-share, cab or public transportation – to get home.
    • See someone who is clearly impaired try and drive? Take the keys and help them make other arrangements to find a sober way home.
    • Report drunk drivers – Call 911.
    • Hosting a party? Offer nonalcoholic drinks. Monitor who is drinking and how they are getting home.

    Getting home safely is cheap, but getting a DUI is not! Drivers caught driving impaired and charged with DUI can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to be upwards of $13,500. This includes fines, fees, DUI classes, license suspension and other expenses not to mention possible jail time.

    Funding for this checkpoint is provided to the Camarillo Police Department by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
