    Moorpark, CA – The Moorpark Police Department Traffic Unit will be conducting a Driver’s License/DUI Checkpoint on August 22, 2020 at an undisclosed location(s) within the city limits. Although we are still experiencing a pandemic, driving under the influence continues to be a problem in our communities. Deputies from the Moorpark station have made numerous DUI arrests so far this year, three in the last three days.

    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 Moorpark 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 2018, 1,069 people were killed in alcohol-involved crashes on California roads. In 2019, the Moorpark Police Station made 179 DUI arrests and investigated 32 DUI collisions resulting in 10 injuries and 1 death. As of August 17, 2020, the Moorpark Police Station has made 101 DUI arrests and has investigated 15 DUI collisions.

    The Moorpark 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.

    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.
