There Are Better Ways To Enforce OVI Law

These well-intentioned enforcement efforts, however, are misguided, ineffective and violative of American values.Dismal arrest rates are common across Ohio and the country,...

Ohio OVI Blitz Continues Through Labor Day

This weekend saw local jurisdictions fully implement the annual Ohio OVI blitz known as "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over."  The enforcement action will last until September 7, 2015 and will be accompanied by radio, television and news coverage. The efforts are funded by massive federal grants and allows local and state police forces to garner massive overtime for the troops.

Beavercreek OVI Checkpoint Perfectly Challenged!

There were some visitors at last night's Beavercreek OVI checkpoint.  If you were driving near Wright State University last night, the Ohio State Highway Patrol in conjunction with many other law enforcement agencies were randomly stopping cars and searching Americans without probable cause.  This unwarranted show of force was sanctioned by the fact that the officers were deterring drunk drivers.  Many of us have been fighting OVI checkpoints for years, but recently a new phenomenon has taken place.Some very brave, very committed and very American people have been showing up at these checkpoints holding signs and telling people of the government...

OVI Checkpoints Miss The Point Says ABI

The American Beverage Institute is an industry-sponsored advocacy group that has stood up to Mother Against Drunk Drivers and their campaing for government funded OVI checkpoints. The beverage group says that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) should back off from the roadblocks and instead support roving patrols to catch heavy drinkers. "By promoting sobriety checkpoints, MADD and NHTSA are ignoring the root cause of today's drunk driving problem - hard core alcohol abusers,'' ABI managing director Sarah Longwell said in a statement."Because they are highly visible by design and publicized in advance, roadblocks...
