News Story - Driver’s License/DUI Checkpoint Results

Nature of Incident: Driver’s License/DUI Checkpoint Results
Location: Moorpark, CA
Date & Time: September 9th, 2022
Unit(s) Responsible: Ventura County Sheriff’s Office Moorpark Police Department - Traffic Bureau
Moorpark, CA – The Moorpark Police Department conducted a Driver’s License/DUI Checkpoint on Friday, September 9th.  The checkpoint was held in the westbound lanes of Tierra Rejada Road near Mountain Trail Court, between the hours of 7:00 p.m. and 12:00 a.m.
During the checkpoint, 406 drivers were screened, resulting in one arrest for DUI. That driver was involved in a traffic collision while he was attempting to avoid the checkpoint. Two drivers were issued citations for driving while their privileges were suspended for prior DUI offenses, one driver was cited for a license violation, and one citation was issued to a driver for other offenses.
Drivers caught driving impaired and charged with DUI can expect the monetary impact of a DUI arrest to be approximately $13,500.  This included fines, fees, DUI classes, license suspension, and possible jail time.
The Moorpark Police Department reminds drivers that “DUI Doesn’t Just Mean Booze.” Prescriptions drugs, particularly those with a driving or operating machinery warning on the label can impair and results in a DUI.  Marijuana can also be impairing, especially in combination with alcohol or other drugs.
The Moorpark Police Department will be conducting another Driver’s License/DUI Checkpoint in the future, in our ongoing commitment to take impaired drivers off our streets and highways.  Driver’s License/DUI Checkpoints aid in lowering the risks for deaths and injuries associated with impaired driving.

Funding for this checkpoint was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, in association with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
