    Oxnard | DUI/Driver’s License Checkpoint Results

    The Oxnard Police Department Traffic Unit arrested two impaired drivers while conducting a DUI/Driver’s license checkpoint on November 22, 2019. The checkpoint was conducted on Wooley Road west of A Street between the hours of 8:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m., resulting in the following:

    • 554 vehicles screened
    • One DUI-alcohol suspect arrested
    • One DUI-drug suspect arrested 
    • 19 drivers cited for operating a vehicle unlicensed or while suspended/revoked 
    • 24 citations issued
    • Three vehicles towed

    DUI checkpoint locations are selected based on collision statistics and frequency of DUI arrests. Last year, the Oxnard Police Department investigated 253 DUI collisions that killed six people and injured 142 others.

    Drivers caught driving impaired and charged with DUI can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to be approximately $13,500. This includes fines, fees, DUI classes, license suspension, and other expenses, not to mention possible jail time.

    The Oxnard Police Department reminds drivers that “DUI Doesn’t Just Mean Booze.” Prescription drugs, particularly those with a driving or operating machinery warning on the label, can impair and result in a DUI. Marijuana can also be impairing, especially in combination with alcohol or other drugs.

    The Oxnard Police Department will be conducting another DUI/Driver’s License Checkpoint on December 21, 2019, in our ongoing commitment to take suspected impaired drivers off our streets and highways, ultimately lowering the risk for deaths and injuries.

    Funding for this checkpoint was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
