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

OVI checkpoints are designed to not only deter impaired driving, but to proactively remove these dangerous drivers from our roadways,” a release says.

The OSP says if anyone plans to consume alcohol, designate a driver or make other travel arrangements beforehand.

“Don’t let another life be lost for the senseless act of getting behind the wheel impaired,” the release says.
