    Oxnard Police Department Holding DUI Checkpoint on June 26, 2021

    The Oxnard Police Department will hold a DUI Checkpoint on Saturday, June 26, 2021, from 6:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. at an undisclosed location within the city limits. 

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

    During the checkpoint, officers will look for signs that drivers are under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.

    The Oxnard Police Department reminds the public that impaired driving is not just from alcohol. Some prescription medications or over-the-counter drugs may interfere with driving. Always follow directions for use and read warning labels about driving or “operating heavy machinery,” which includes driving a car. While medicinal and recreational marijuana is legal, driving under the influence of marijuana is illegal.

    If you plan on drinking or taking medications that may impact your ability to drive safely, plan on staying at home.

    Drivers charged with DUI face an average of $13,500 in fines and penalties, as well as a suspended license. Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

    Not exactly what you’re looking for, but the OTS does report on the safety of Oxnard streets compared to other cities with a population of from 100,001 to 150,000. (The number to the left of the / is the rank. Number 1 is the worst and 59 the best.)

    I’d certainly like to see that “history of DUI crashes and arrests” which are supposedly use to determine the location of a checkpoint.
