A drunken driving checkpoint announced earlier this week will take place Thursday evening.
The checkpoint’s location will be announced Thursday morning, according to the Ohio Highway Patrol’s Medina Post.
The patrol will conduct the checkpoint with the Medina County OVI Task Force and will be funded by federal grants.
“OVI checkpoints are designed to not only deter impaired driving,” patrol Lt. Bill Haymaker said, “but to proactively remove these dangerous drivers from our roadways.”
Law enforcement is required to announce OVI checkpoints ahead of time in order to comply with Fourth Amendment search and seizure laws.
