On Friday September 4, 2015 between the hours of 9:00 PM to 2:15 AM the Ventura Police Department conducted a DUI/CDL Checkpoint in the area of Harbor Blvd and Schooner Dr. The deterrent effect of DUI checkpoints is a proven resource in reducing the number of persons killed and injured in alcohol or drug involved crashes. Research shows that crashes involving an impaired driver can be reduced by up to 20 percent when well-publicized DUI checkpoints and proactive DUI patrols are conducted routinely.
As a result of the checkpoint the following enforcement action was taken:
2 drivers were cited for 14601 VC, Driving on a suspended license and had their vehicles towed.
9 drivers were cited for 12500(a) VC, Driving without a drivers license.
1 driver was cited for 23222 (b) VC, Driver in possession of marijuana in a vehicle.
1 driver was given a DMV Re-Exam for driving under the influence of marijuana.
1 driver arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs.
Any questions regarding the Checkpoint can directed to Sgt. Darrick Brunk at 805-339-4323, or by email at [email protected].
