Oxnard | One Driver Arrested at the Oxnard DUI Checkpoint

Oxnard, Calif. – 587 responsible drivers were screened while driving through a DUI checkpoint on October 23, 2020, as no drivers were arrested for DUI.   The checkpoint was held at Wooley Road and S. A Street from 8:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. 

Thirty drivers were cited for operating a vehicle unlicensed or with a suspended/revoked license and one driver was arrested for a misdemeanor warrant.

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.
