Tonight’s OVI checkpoint will be on U.S. 23 in Delaware, according to state troopers.
Troopers will be assisted by Powell police, as well as county sheriff’s deputies.
The checkpoint will run from 9 p.m. today to 1 a.m. Saturday.
The goal will be intercepting impaired drivers, according to the Delaware post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol.
The checkpoint will also be “held in conjunction with nearby saturation patrols to aggressively combat alcohol-related injury and fatal crashes,” according to a prepared statement from the post.
Residents who plan to consume alcohol are encouraged to designate a driver or make other transportation arrangements before they drink, troopers said.
