Oxnard | Four Drivers Arrested at Oxnard DUI Checkpoints

Oxnard, Calif. – Four drivers were arrested for DUI while conducting two DUI checkpoints on September 4, 2020.  The checkpoints were held at Rose Avenue and Lindsey Place and at Victoria Avenue and Hemlock Street from 8:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. 

Forty-nine drivers were cited for operating a vehicle unlicensed or with a suspended/revoked license, 24 traffic citations issued, two vehicles were towed, and 1494 vehicles screened. 

Checkpoint locations are based on a history of crashes and DUI arrests. The primary purpose of checkpoints is not to make arrests, but to promote public safety by deterring drivers from driving impaired.

As businesses continue to reopen, including bars and restaurants, impaired driving remains a top traffic safety concern.  Funding for this checkpoint was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
