    The Oxnard Police Department Encourages Safe St. Patrick’s Day Celebrations

    News Release

    Oxnard, Calif. – This St. Patrick’s Day, the Oxnard Police Department will be on alert for suspected impaired drivers and reminds the community to celebrate the holiday responsibly.

    Additional officers will be on patrol in the evening hours of March 17th looking for drivers suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.  Additionally, there will be a sobriety/driver’s license checkpoint being conducted at an undisclosed location in the City of Oxnard.

    During the 2019 St. Patrick’s Day holiday period, nearly half of all traffic deaths throughout the country involved a drunk driver.

    The Oxnard Police Department wants to warn the community that alcohol is not the only substance that can cause impairment. Cannabis, prescription medications, over-the-counter drugs, and illegal drugs can all lead to a DUI.

    If you ever see a suspected drunk driver on the road, call 911.

    Funding for this program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
