OVI checkpoint tonight in Mineral Ridge
The Ohio State Highway Patrol, in conjunction with the Weathersfield Township Police Department, announced today that an Operating a Vehicle Impaired checkpoint will be in place from 10 p.m. until 2 a.m. s on state Route 46 in Weathersfield Township.
The OVI checkpoint, funded by federal grant funds, is planned to deter and intercept impaired drivers.
The checkpoint will also be held in conjunction with nearby saturation patrols to aggressively combat alcohol-related injury and fatal crashes.
If you plan to consume alcohol, designate a driver or make other travel arrangements before you drink. Don’t let another life be lost for the senseless and selfish act of getting behind the wheel impaired.
