The Ohio State Highway Patrol, in conjunction with the Port Clinton Police
Department and the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office, announced they will team up for an OVI checkpoint from 8-10 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 26 on Perry Street in Ottawa County.
The OVI checkpoint, funded by federal grant funds, is planned to deter and intercept impaired drivers.
The checkpoint will also be held in conjunction with nearby saturation patrols to aggressively combat impaired driver-related injury and fatal crashes.
If you plan to consume alcohol, designate a driver or make other travel arrangements before you drink. Don’t let another life be list for the senseless and selfish act of getting behind the wheel impaired, say officials.
