The sobriety checkpoint will start at 7 p.m. and end no later than 10 p.m. on northbound Ohio 4, specifically at 6262 Hamilton-Middletown Road in front of the Monroe Fire Station.

State law requires OVI checkpoint times and locations be announced ahead of time.

In addition to the checkpoint, there will be saturation patrols in the area, as part of the task force’s continuing effort to reduce OVI-related crashes resulting in injuries and fatalities.
