Mount Gilead – The Mount Gilead Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol announced today that an OVI checkpoint will be held from 8:00 p.m. through 10:00 p.m. tonight on State Route 13 near Mount Vernon Avenue, in Knox County.
The OVI checkpoint, funded by federal grant funds, is planned to deter and intercept impaired drivers.
The checkpoint will also be held in conjunction with nearby saturation patrols to aggressively combat impaired driver-related injury and fatal crashes.
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.
