Troopers wish to deter and intercept impaired drivers in the county, according to the release.

“If you plan to consume alcohol, designate a driver or make other travel arrangements before you drink. Don’t let another life be lost for the senseless and selfish act of getting behind the wheel impaired,” Lt. Clint Arnold of the OSHP said in the release.

Local law enforcement agencies and the Butler County OVI Task Force will assist OSHP.
