OSHP is reminding drivers if you plan to consume alcohol, designate a driver or make other travel arrangements.


EDITOR’S NOTE: Why are the locations and times of a sobriety checkpoint released?

Guidelines issued by the NHTSA instruct law enforcement to “aggressively” publicize the locations.

The goal, according to the NHTSA, is to not only to deter impaired drivers from getting behind the wheel but also to assure the protection of constitutional rights for both police and the public.
