The State Highway Patrol, in conjunction with the Logan County Sheriff’s Office and Ohio Department of Natural Resources, announced today that a sobriety checkpoint will be held from 10:00 pm to 2:00 am tonight on State Route 235 at Indian Lake State Park.
The sobriety checkpoint will be operated using federal grant funding and 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. Officers from Russells Point and Washington Township will assist.
Troopers are again reminding those who plan to consume alcohol to also plan for a sober driver or make other appropriate travel arrangements before drinking. Alcohol-related crashes continue to be a significant problem nationally and locally.
