Hi Friends,

I stumbled across this article from the Cleveland Plain Dealer and thought I would share it. If you ever in need of an attorney to protect your rights, contact us.

Here is the link to the article

 

PARMA, Ohio — No one was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving during a sobriety checkpoint Friday in Parma. Nevertheless, police believe it was a success.

“Contrary to popular belief, [drunken driving checkpoints] aren’t really to catch drunken drivers,” Parma Sgt. Ken Gillissie said. “They’re to educate the public.”

Officers checked 375 cars during Friday’s checkpoint, which took place from 7 p.m. to midnight in the 5600 block of Pearl Road.

Each driver was given information about drunken driving and a complementary $5 cab voucher as part of a partnership between Ace Taxi and the Cuyahoga County DUI Task Force.

Flashing signs also publicized information such as the fact 341 people died in drunken driving incidents last year in Ohio.

The Parma Police Department operates three to four checkpoints per year with funding through the Cuyahoga County DUI Task Force, police said.

Many drivers say they appreciate the extra scrutiny. During a recent checkpoint, one car even circled the block several times in order to be directed into the checkpoint for questioning, Gillissie said.

Parma sobriety checkpoint Parma Capt. Joseph Boback demonstrates what it’s like to drive through a drunken driving checkpoint.

“They said they wanted the experience,” he said.

Some drivers complain the checkpoints are bothersome or an encroachment on their rights, Gillissie said. However, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that the checkpoints, which are designed to be non-discriminatory, are constitutional, according to the Ohio State Bar Association.

Twenty-one cars were diverted for further inspection during Friday’s checkpoint. One driver was cited for possession of suspected marijuana and two were cited for disorderly conduct.

An officer is assigned to count cars and send a certain number into the checkpoint; at busy times that could be every fourth or fifth car, but at slower times it could be every car, Gillissie said.

A patrol car is stationed near the entrance to watch for drivers who make illegal turns to avoid it, Gillissie said. An increased number of patrol cars, known as saturation patrols, are also stationed nearby to catch drunken drivers.

Drivers who are diverted during checkpoints might be asked to take three field sobriety tests. If the driver fails two tests, he or she is arrested, Gillissie said.

A driver is then observed for 20 minutes before being asked to take a breath test. The driver can refuse to take the breath test.

Parma police use a van filled with equipment, including cameras and the Intoxilyzer 8000 breath test machine, to record every aspect of the observation and test. Only Parma Detention Center corrections officers can administer tests because they must be state-certified, according to corrections officer Brian Berardi.

Labor Day weekend fatalities down, OVI and drug arrests up

COLUMBUS – This Labor Day weekend, there was an increase in Patrol enforcement and a decrease in traffic crash fatalities. Eleven fatal crashes resulted in 11 deaths during the reporting period of midnight on Friday, August 29 through 11:59 p.m. on Monday, September 1, compared to 16 fatalities during the four-day period in 2013.

Hi Everyone,

Summer may be winding down but it appears that OVI checkpoints will not be anytime soon. There are three checkpoints that we know of for Friday, August 8th 2014. One will be in Portage county, another in Cuyahoga County and the other will be Clermont County.

In addition, the National Drive Sober or Get Pulled over campaign starts next week and lasts around a month. “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” is a national campaign designed to raise awareness about the dangers of drinking and driving through high-visibility enforcement and public education tools, including posters, banners and mobile video display signs. Launched nationally in 1999, the program works to combat drunk driving during some of the busiest travel times of the year.  In the next few weeks expect OVI checkpoints at Solon, Euclid, Lakewood, Parma, Berea, Maple Heights, Beachwood amongst others throughout the state of Ohio. We know of the exact times and locations, so comeback regularly for updates.
