Moorpark, CA – The Moorpark Police Department conducted a Driver’s License / DUI Checkpoint on Friday, September 3rd.  The checkpoint was held in the southbound lanes of Spring Road near Roberts Avenue, between the hours of 7:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m.
During the checkpoint, 399 drivers were screened, resulting in one arrest for DUI and one arrest for outstanding DUI warrants. Four drivers were cited for not having a valid driver’s license or driving with a suspended license, and four citations were issued to drivers for various 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 result 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.
