Narrative:

Thousand Oaks, Calif. –Thousand Oaks Police Department made 1 arrest for DUI while conducting a DUI/Driver’s License checkpoint on February 23, 2019. The checkpoint locations were west bound Lynn Road at Capitan Street from 8:00 pm to 11:00 pm and east bound Olsen Road at the city limits from 11:00 pm to 2:30 am.

In addition, 13 drivers were cited/ arrested for operating a vehicle unlicensed or with a suspended/revoked license.

Drivers caught driving impaired and charged with DUI can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to be approximately $13,500. This includes fines, fees, DUI classes, license suspension and other expenses not to mention possible jail time.

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

The Thousand Oaks Police Department will be conducting another DUI/Driver’s License Checkpoint on Saturday March 16, 2019 in our ongoing commitment to take suspected impaired drivers off our streets and highways, ultimately lowering the risk for deaths and injuries.

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