As loyal readers of the Ohio OVI blog know, we care about safe streets throughout Northeast Ohio. We like the people of this area and we want to stop them from driving drunk or running into any trouble with the law. Because of that, we often post check point lists before the weekend so people understand the legal risks they take when they decide to drive drunk.
Similarly, we want to warn people of a driver’s license check point later today in Cleveland at W. 117th and Linnet Ave. The purpose of this check point will be to intercept unlicensed drivers. It’s unsafe to drive without a license, and police are on the lookout for it. Here is the press release from the Cleveland Police from earlier today.
As we always say, drive safely. That means designating a driver when you go out to drink and it means staying off the road if you don’t have a license. Trust us, we deal with DUI and OVI cases in Ohio every day at Taubman Law and we know how seriously the police take all road offenses.
Cleveland – Today Michael McGrath, Chief of the Cleveland Division of Police and Thomas McCartney, Commander of the First District, announced that First District officers will operate a driver’s license checkpoint to deter and intercept unlicensed drivers. First District officers will conduct the driver’s license checkpoint between the hours of 9:30 p.m. and 1:00 a.m. at W. 117th Street and Linnet Avenue.
