Happy Turkey week, Ohio. As we mentioned last week, the upcoming holiday means a lot of travel, which means that the Ohio State Highway Patrol and local police offices will be out in full force to ensure safety.
Keep this in mind as you head out to stuff yourself full of turkey, gravy and eggnog. If you enjoy your holiday with a few adult beverages, designate a driver.
Here’s what we know about the checkpoints throughout the state so far.
Cleveland will be having a checkpoint Wednesday night. It will be from 10 pm to 3 am on Ontario at Carnegie Avenue.
Clark County will also have two checkpoints on Wednesday. The first will be from 2 pm to 8 pm on North and Center. The second will be along US 40 from 8:30-midnight.
Euclid will have one Wednesday night as well. That one, too, we will post details on as we hear more.
Middletown will have a checkpoint Wednesday night from 11 p to 3 am. It will be along Route 4.
More than 1.6 million Ohioans will be traveling for Thanksgiving weekend, and the Ohio Highway Patrol announced today that they would be setting up saturation points and extra patrols across Buckeye land. Here’s some more details on that, if you’re interested.
The moral of the story, as always, is party safe. If you run into an issue and need a DUI attorney, contact Taubman Law.
