Thousand Oaks, Calif. –Thousand Oaks Police Department made no arrests for DUI while conducting a DUI/Driver License checkpoint on August 17, 2019.  The checkpoint location was west bound Hillcrest Drive at Kalinda Street from 8:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m.
There were 16 drivers cited/arrested for operating a vehicle unlicensed or with a suspended/revoked license during the checkpoint.  Additionally, five other drivers were cited for other various license violations, totaling 21 citations issued out of the checkpoint.
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 continue conducting DUI/Driver License Checkpoints throughout the upcoming months 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.
