COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The Ohio State Highway Patrol will hold two OVI checkpoints tonight in Logan County to combat impaired driving.

The checkpoints will be on State Route 366, Main Street in Village of Russells Point and South Main Street in Bellefontaine in Logang County.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol, in conjunction with other law enforcement agencies, will conduct the OVI checkpoints between 7 p.m. and midnight.

The checkpoints will be held in conjunction with increase patrols and aggressive combat impaired driver-related injury and fatal crashes.


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.
