OVI checkpoints planned in Howland, Weathersfield tonight
The Ohio State Highway Patrol, in conjunction with the Howland Township Police Department and the Weathersfield Township Police Department, announced today that two OVI checkpoints will take place between 10 p.m. tonight and 3 a.m. Sunday on North Road in Howland Township and State Route 46 in Weathersfield Township.
The OVI checkpoints, funded by federal grant funds, are planned to deter and intercept impaired drivers.
The checkpoints will also be held in conjunction with nearby saturation patrols to aggressively combat alcohol-related injury and fatal crashes.
The patrol warns that if you plan to consume alcohol, designate a driver or make other travel arrangements before you drink.
