The Dayton Police Department and Combined Agency OVI Task Force members of Montgomery County are conducting two sobriety checkpoints between 6:30 and 11:30 p.m. tonight.

The first will be in the Stanley Avenue and Troy Street area and the second will be in the South Smithville Road and Linden Avenue area.

Ohio law requires law enforcement to announce checkpoint times and locations ahead of time.

The task force announced Thursday that there would be four sobriety checkpoints during the start of Memorial Day weekend.

The first two were held Thursday night.

The OVI task force aims to reduce the number of alcohol or drug-related traffic crashes, injuries and fatalities. Sobriety checkpoints help deter impaired driving, and they help in the apprehension of impaired drivers, police said.
