Reising said the monthly frequency of OVI checkpoints will likely increase so that the Butler County OVI Task Force can meet its minimum grant requirement of 16 OVI Checkpoints between October 2019 and September 2020. He said the Task Force has conducted six OVI checkpoints for this grant so far.
“I hope the increased frequency of checkpoints will eliminate the alcohol-related fatal crashes to zero,” Reising said. “There was one alcohol-related fatal crash in March, one in June, and currently one in July which was a triple fatality crash. Butler County law enforcement agencies are continuing to make OVI arrests during the pandemic.”
The Butler County OVI Task Force is funded by U.S. Department of Transportation/National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Ohio Department of Public Safety.
