OVI checkpoint planned tonight in Warren County

An OVI checkpoint will be held from 9 to 11 p.m. tonight on Ohio-3/U.S. 22 just east of Landen Drive in Deerfield Twp.

That’s according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, which is holding the checkpoint in conjunction with the Warren County Sheriff’s Office and the Hamilton Township Police Department

Funded by federal grant funds, the OVI checkpoint is planned “to deter and intercept impaired drivers,” according to 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, OSHP said.
