An OVI checkpoint has been set for 8:30 p.m. to midnight today in Clark County, the Ohio Highway Patrol announced this afternoon.
The checkpoint, funded by a federal grant, is planned to deter and intercept impaired drivers on U.S. 40, according to a press release.
It will be staffed by troopers from OSP, the Clark County Sheriff’s deputies and Springfield and Enon police.
The checkpoint will be held in conjunction with nearby saturation patrols to aggressively combat alcohol-related injuries and fatal crashes.
Officials remind drivers that if they plan to consume alcohol, they should designate a driver or make other travel arrangements before they drink.
