OVI Crackdown: Drive Sober Or Get Pulled Over
Aug. 21 through Sept. 7 (Labor Day), law enforcement partners nationwide will show zero tolerance for drunk driving. Increased state and national messaging about the dangers of driving drunk, coupled with checkpoints and increased officers on the road, aim to drastically increase OVI arrests. This is part of the annual “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign.
There will be three sobriety checkpoints in the Miami Valley area tonight and multiple checkpoints throughout Ohio.
Kettering will be holding its checkpoint on Saturday, with details of the location released Saturday morning.
The Germantown Police Department will conduct a checkpoint from 8:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. on State Route 4 in Germantown.
Clark County will be conducting “rolling” checkpoints tonight (Friday August 21st). A rolling checkpoint means that multiple locations will be set up in Clark County in one evening. The first is from 7-9 along Main St. in Enon. The second is from 10p-12a at State Routes 40 & 68 near Snyder Park.
Franklin: A checkpoint will be held from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. on S.R. 123 north of Beal Road in Franklin.
In addition to all of the OVI checkpoints, you can expect that jurisdictions will be conducting saturation patrols looking for any reason to pull over suspected drunk drivers.
