OVI checkpoint planned for Trumbull County Friday


An Operating a vehicle impaired checkpoint will be held in Trumbull County Friday at a location to be announced later, the Ohio State Highway Patrol in Southington said.

The OVI checkpoint, funded by a federal grant, is intended to deter and intercept impaired drivers.

“Based on provisional data, there were 371 OVI-related fatal crashes in which 396 people were killed last year in Ohio,” Lt. Brian Holt, commander of the Southington post, said.

“State troopers make on average 25,000 OVI arrests each year in an attempt to combat these dangerous drivers. OVI checkpoints are designed to not only deter impaired driving, but to proactively remove these dangerous drivers from our roadways.”

These are big money making scams. Yes they are good but what about those off duty cops that I saw in a bar about a month ago that were intoxicated and loud and they drove away in their own vehicles.

Oh, but it's ok for them to drink and drive, pull you over when they are back on duty and act like you've just commited a murder. Yes, simple. Don't drink and drive but I know a whole lot of people that have had 1 plus drinks and drove. There are more people out there doing that than you think.

I had 6 DUI's and went to prison for it. And I thank GOD everyday I didn't kill anyone or any family or child. With all the education and warnings today, you would have to be a "idiot" (like I was) to drink and drive.
Save your life, save a child's life, save a families life, don't "Drink and Drive" real simple.
