The Marysville Post of the State Highway Patrol announced today that troopers, in conjunction with deputies from the Logan County Sheriff’s Office and officers from other local agencies, will operate an OVI sobriety checkpoint to deter and intercept impaired drivers in Logan County tomorrow evening. The specific location of the checkpoint will be announced tomorrow morning.
There will also be a checkpoint in Union County tomorrow night.
“Statewide, troopers make on average 25,000 impaired driver arrests each year to help improve traffic safety for all Ohio citizens. OVI checkpoints are designed to deter impaired driving and remove those that don’t heed the warning.” Lieutenant Ronald Raines (pictured), commander of the Marysville Post said.
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. Please help the Patrol prevent more tragedy resulting from impaired driving by spreading the message.
