1504 drivers were screened while driving through a DUI checkpoint on March 17, 2021. The checkpoint was held at Oxnard Blvd. south of Wagon Wheel Road from 5:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m.
Fourteen drivers were cited for operating a vehicle unlicensed or with a suspended/revoked license. One driver was arrested for DUI.
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.
