After a very busy checkpoint season for Turkey Day, it seems some areas of Ohio will not let their officers rest.
We know of at least one checkpoint this weekend: Parma will have one Friday night on Ridge Road. We’ve heard it will be near the Mallchok Funeral Home (5660 Ridge Road). We’ve been told it will be from 7 pm to 12 am.
We have also heard word that Bratenahl will have a checkpoint next weekend.
As always, if you’re going to go paint the town by taking a shot for ever quarterback who played for the Browns this year, designate your driver now.
Thanks to Taubman Law for the checkpoint information.
Remember that we’re really cool now and we’re on Twitter @OhioOviBlog.
We also like photos of memes that our aunts send, so we’re on Facebook.
As we’ve grown here at the Ohio OVI blog we’ve become a popular place for people to learn about checkpoints across the state. Our goal has always been to keep people safe by promoting designated drivers.
In doing this, we have been asked many, many questions about the legality of checkpoints and what happens when you’re pulled over at a checkpoint. So, we want to answer your questions once and for all.
We do not claim to be experts at the Ohio OVI Blog. (Unless you’re talking about Cleveland Browns draft strategy. That’s something we could have done better than any GM over the last 14 years). But we do know how to find answers. When it comes to questions about DUIs, OVIs, checkpoints and the like, we ask our friends at Taubman Law.
So here’s the story: If you post your DUI, checkpoint and other questions in the comments on our blog, we will do our best to get answers for you. Depending on the feedback, we may do a post with answers to all the questions or we may do each question as a single post. Please post the questions in the comments section and not on our Facebook page as we hate filling up people’s newsfeeds (that’s what baby pictures and complaints about ex friends/spouses are for). If you include your full name in the comment, we will use it in the blog post. If you don’t, we won’t.
One important issue of note: We will get the clearest answers we can from Taubman Law, but they are not here to give legal advice. If you are looking for legal advice or representation, they can offer consultation but that is something outside the office of this blog.
So, ready, set, post. You want answers, so send us your questions. Go.

The great meal is nearly upon us.
But before the great meal comes the great night out. With friends and family in town, the Wednesday before Thanksgiving is one of the biggest days out every year.
This fact has not slipped by the sleuths at police stations across the state.
Cleveland has announced that it will have a checkpoint Wednesday night at Clark Avenue and West 30th Street. It will take place from 11 pm to 2 am.
Canton announced that it will have two checkpoints tonight. One in the 4500 block of Route 62 and the other in the 2900 block of State Route 172 in Canton Township.
Medina Township will also have one. It will be at State Route 18, East of Riverstyx road. It runs from 9:30 pm to 2 am tonight.
We also know that Montgomery County will have one Wednesday. It will be in Harrison Township from 7 pm to 11 pm. The exact location will be announced tomorrow.
We’ve also been told about a cornucopia of saturation points. Nearly every Northeast Ohio city or town will be participating in a DUI crackdown, so call your cab or designate your driver before the fireballs, car bombs and those fancy new shots with Great Lakes Christmas Ale and Jameson.
The following cities have shared that they are hosting saturation points:
As always, our friends at Taubman Law provided us with this information. We say this every week, but I don’t know if you guys take us seriously: Call the team at Taubman Law when you need help. They handle OVI/DUI, workers’ comp and personal injury.

It’s important for us to get some information to you loyal Ohio OVI readers before we start drowning ourselves in red wine and gravy.
There will be several checkpoints across the state of Ohio this coming holiday week. We will try to update this post as many times as possible as information comes in.
For now, we know that Cleveland will have a checkpoint next Wednesday (November 27). We’ll have an exact time and location next week.
There will be many others, but we’re waiting on information on those.
As always, the information on this blog is provided by Taubman Law. Should you need help with an OVI, personal injury or workers’ comp case, give ‘em a call. They can also share their fantastic ideas on how to plan a cheese plate for your holiday party.

Hello Ohio OVI readers.
As you have probably figured out, we use this blog to talk about checkpoints across Ohio, particularly in Cleveland, Akron and Columbus. But today we want to talk about something completely different: Mustaches.
You know, those bristly-good indicators of how manly a man really is. During November people across the country participate in Movember. This fun, engaging and hairy movement raises money for prostate and testicular cancer. This year, as in year’s past, one of our good friends at Taubman Law is joining the movement. His team, Your Friendly Nose Neighbors, is filled with more fun mustaches than a 70s porn party.
Here is the page: http://us.movember.com/team/964449
Any amount you can donate is a help. If you can’t donate, share the page with others who can. If you do, we promise more pictures like this one:
Trust us, that’s just the tip of the mustache. We’ll post more if we get some donations. You can donate to any team member or the whole team. Please include that you found this on The Ohio OVI Blog.
Thanks for reading. Stay stachy.
Cleveland police are continuing their crackdown on drunk drivers as the holidays near.
This week they are planning three checkpoints in Cleveland for tonight (Friday).
First, they are having a driver’s license checkpoint tonight at East 105th and Superior Avenue from Noon until 4:30 pm.
Second, they are having a driver’s license checkpoint at West 25th and Detroit from 10 pm to 12 am.
Lastly, they will have a checkpoint on St. Clair Avenue eastbound from East 95th to East 100th Street. That checkpoint will take place from 9 pm to 1 am.
Our recommendation, as ever, is to designate a driver if you’re going out to paint the town this weekend. And if you don’t have a license, don’t drive. Stay safe, Ohio.
As always, our good friends at Taubman Law shared this information with us. Taubman Law wants you to know that they specialize in personal injury, workers’ comp, OVI law and in giving warm hugs to clients who want them. Look ‘em up if you need legal help.

The first is in the Cleveland area. It’s in Garfield Heights tonight (Friday) on Turney Road. It’s from 9 pm to 2:30 am.
The second is in Cincinnati. It’s on the 4500 block of Spring Grove Avenue in Spring Grove Village. It will be from 9 pm to 1 am.

We just got late word that there is a checkpoint in Cleveland tonight (Thursday night).
It’s on Broadway Avenue at Baxter from 7 pm to 1 am.
As always, we recommend you follow our Facebook page to get updates on checkpoint news as we get the information.
Happy Friday, Ohio.
Neither rain, nor sleet, nor some kind of snow mix, nor a little bit of sunshine have slowed the police crack down on drunk driving throughout the state.
We just found out about multiple checkpoints in Elyria tonight (Friday). We are awaiting confirmation on the time and locations. It looks like one will be on Cleveland Street near Beverly Court and the other will be on Cleveland Street near Hawthorne Street. We’ll update this as we find out more.
Northwood announced it will have a checkpoint tonight (Friday) on Woodville Road. They did not release a time.
Also, as we previously mentioned, Medina will also have a checkpoint this weekend. It will be Saturday night. They have not released the time/location details. We’ll update this post when we get that info.
As always, our information is provided by Taubman Law. Call the fine folks for help with your personal injury, workers’ comp or DUI case. You might find that you’ll get more than a lawyer; you might just get a lifelong friend. Or, if you don’t want that, you’ll just get a lawyer.

Hello Canton. How is the Football Hall of Fame? We hope it’s still great.
We haven’t had anything to share with you for a while, but today we do. There will be a checkpoint tonight on Trump Avenue from 10 pm to 1 am. As always, the checkpoint will be looking to take drunk drivers off the street.
The best advice we can give is to designate a driver now. Find a friend that’s a sucker. Call a cab. Walk. Do whatever it takes to avoid getting yourself into trouble because OVIs and DUIs are expensive. You should use that money to go to the hall of fame instead. That’s what we’d do with that money.
As always, this checkpoint information is brought to you by Taubman Law. At Taubman Law they love practicing law in Canton. Or Massilon. Or Alliance. Or Akron. Or Stow. Or Hudson. Or Cuyahoga Falls. Frankly, they love all of Northeast Ohio. Give ‘em a call when you need help with an OVI case, a workers’ comp case or a personal injury claim.
