Ross County – OVI Checkpoint Area Announced


Chillicothe – The Ohio State Highway Patrol, in conjunction with the Ross County Sheriff’s
Department and the Chillicothe Police Department, announced today that an OVI checkpoint will be held from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. tonight on Eastern Avenue in Ross 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.
