    Thousand Oaks, CA – The Thousand Oaks Police Department Traffic Unit will be conducting a Driver’s License/DUI Checkpoint on August 17, 2019, at an undisclosed location(s) within the city limits.

    DUI Checkpoints like this one are placed in locations based on  collision  statistics and frequency  of DUI arrests. Officers will be looking for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment, with officers checking drivers for proper licensing.

    The Thousand Oaks Police Department reminds drivers that “DUI Doesn’t Just  Mean  Booze.”  If you  take  prescription drugs, particularly those with  a driving or  operating machinery warning on the label, you might be impaired enough to get a DUI. Marijuana can also be impairing, especially    in combination with alcohol or other drugs, and can result in a DUI.

    In 2017, at least 1,120 people were killed in alcohol-involved crashes on California roads Locally, over the course of the past three years, DUI collisions have claimed 6 lives and resulted in 85 injury crashes harming 112 of our friends and neighbors.

    The Thousand Oaks Police Department offers these reminders to ensure you have a safe night of fun that doesn’t involve a DUI:

    • Always use a designated sober driver – a friend who is not drinking, ride-share, cab or public transportation – to get home.
    • See someone who is clearly impaired try and drive? Take the keys and help them make other arrangements to find a sober way
    • Report drunk drivers – Call
    • Hosting a party? Offer nonalcoholic drinks. Monitor who are drinking and how they are getting

    Getting home safely is cheap, but getting a DUI is not! Drivers caught driving impaired and charged with DUI can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to be upwards of $13,500. This includes fines, fees, DUI classes, license suspension and other expenses not to mention possible jail time.

    Funding for this checkpoint is provided to the Thousand Oaks Police Department by a  grant from  the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
