OVI checkpoint scheduled tonight in Brunswick


The Medina post of the Ohio Highway Patrol will hold an OVI checkpoint in Brunswick tonight.

The checkpoint is planned for the corner of Oxford Drive and Route 42.

The OVI checkpoint, funded by federal grant funds, is planned to deter and intercept impaired drivers, said Lt. Mark Neff, commander of the Medina post.

“There were three OVI-related fatal crashes in which four people were killed in Medina County last year and two OVI-related fatal crashes in which two people were killed in Medina County year to date in 2018,” he said in a statement. “State troopers make on average 26,000 arrests statewide each year in an attempt to combat these dangerous drivers. OVI checkpoints are designed to not only deter impaired driving, but to proactively remove these dangerous drivers from our roadways.”

The Fourth Amendment requires law enforcement to release the time and location of the checkpoint.
