On September 29, 2022 between the hours of 5:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m., police officers from the Oxnard Police Department Traffic Unit and Neighborhood Policing Team conducted a city-wide traffic enforcement operation to address street racing, reckless driving, and modified vehicle violations that disrupt the quality of life of residents.. The enforcement operation resulted in fifty citations including twenty-seven of which were for loud/modified exhaust or modified emissions violations, and one arrest for reckless driving. The Oxnard Police Department is committed to ensuring traffic safety on our roadways and will continue the zero-tolerance enforcement efforts in an attempt to curb illegal street racing and reckless driving.
This has been the fourth street racing operation within the past two months in response to increased community concerns about hazardous and reckless driving on our roadways. Street racing and other forms of reckless driving are dangerous and can lead to serious injury collisions on our roadways. Specially trained personnel will continue working traffic safety operations to reduce collisions and increase safety on our highways.
