“The OVI checkpoint, funded by federal grant funds, is planned to deter and intercept impaired drivers,” the release says.

Lt. Brian Aller, commander of the state patrol’s Springfield Post, previously told the Springfield News-Sun that his office was working on setting up more OVI checkpoints over the summer and will have troopers working overtime to stop dangerous drivers.

“We are trying to keep people who are impaired off the roadway so they don’t kill people who hurt somebody,” Aller said.
