- The Ohio State Highway Patrol, in conjunction with Miami Township Police Department and Clermont County Sheriff's Office, announced today that an OVI checkpoint will be held from 10:00 PM to 2:00 AM tonight on SR 28, east of Buckwheat Road, in Miami Township, Clermont 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 alcohol-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.
Hamilton County, Ohio
