Happy Friday, Northeast Ohio! It looks like the continued cold is keeping the DUI/OVI checkpoints at a minimum again this week. We made our calls and checked our press releases here at the Ohio OVI Blog, but no official checkpoints were announced.

As always, that doesn’t mean there aren’t any. We’ll update the blog if we hear anything. In the meantime, we’d like to hear more from you when you know about a checkpoint. Occasionally local areas will set one after we’ve called and we won’t find out about it until later. So if you see one/hear about one we haven’t mentioned, go ahead and post on this blog or hit us up on Twitter – @OhioOVINetwork.

That’s all for today. Remember, if you’re going to drink, don’t drive. It’s that simple.

Oh, and if you need a good attornery, Taubman Law is here to help protect your rights.

Happy Saturday and happy 2011, Northeast Ohio. We hope you had a wonderful and safe New Year’s Eve.

We noticed a lot of people around town were taking our advice and using designated drivers last night. It’s a good thing, too, because there were saturation points all over town set up to catch drivers who had been drinking.

If you were one of those drivers pulled over for DUI/OVI, you now need to make sure your rights are being protected. We have years of experience defending people on DUI/OVI charges in Ohio and we always put our clients’ needs first.

If you need help, contact us. If you want to read more about our OVI/DUI experience, visit our Cuyahoga County DUI site.

As always, we’re happy to help defend your rights.

Happy New Year, Northeast Ohio. We hope you’re over 2010 and ready to take on 2011 with a full head of steam.

We’re feeling refreshed after a week off at the Ohio OVI Blog and we’re back in action. We called our usual police stations for a checkpoint list this week and heard some interesting things. First, it appears there aren’t that many checkpoints. The only one we know of will be in Cleveland, but we haven’t heard where it will be as of this posting. Second, that doesn’t mean cops are giving up on catching drunk drivers. In fact, there’s a big focus on saturation points this weekend, which means nothing is set but there will be lots of cops looking for OVI/DUI in busy areas. Areas like downtown Cleveland, downtown Akron, etc. will be filled with cops trying to protect everyone’s safety.

So while the below report doesn’t show much action, please remember to drive safely this weekend. If you’re going to pound the champagne, designate a driver.

And, as always, if you need legal help defending yourself in an OVI/DUI case, give us a ring.

That’s all. Here’s the places we checked and what we’ve heard back thus far:

Akron/Summit County – Unable to get confirmation one way or another thus far.

Happy turkey time Northeast Ohio. The team over at Taubman Law is about to take a long weekend to enjoy the season, but we wanted to get our weekly list of checkpoints out before everyone begins their holiday travels.

Because so many people travel this time of year there are checkpoints and saturation points all over the area the next four days. So, while you might be tired of hearing us say it, we’ll say it again: If you’re going to be drinking, designate a driver. Take our word for it; you don’t want to deal with a DUI or OVI during the holiday season (check out our Cuyahoga County DUI site sometime to see what a pain the punishment for DUI/OVI is).

Anyway, we already know about checkpoints in Elyria, Euclid and Portage County this weekend. The details of those, along with the list of other areas we checked, are below. If we hear anything else we’ll keep you updated.

In the meantime, we’d like to use this time of thanks to say how much we appreciate our readers. We’re over 700 ‘likes’ on Facebook and have had several posts go over 500 views on our blog. We hope this blog helps keep our community safe. We’re big fans of Northeast Ohio here at Taubman Law, and we’re always happy to help you defend your rights.

Monday is here and it’s back to work. The grind of a work week is bad enough, but if you had a rough weekend – that is, if you ran into trouble with the law for OVI or DUI – the pressure is probably getting to you.

The fact of the matter is the cost and punishment potential for an OVI or DUI conviction in Ohio is steep. Regardless of your driving record, you need experienced legal representation to make sure your rights are protected.

At Taubman Law we handle DUI/OVI cases every day. Our Cuyahoga County DUI site is a great resource for the rules and regulations in Ohio, and we are always happy to take a phone call or an email to help you get your case squared away. Dealing with an OVI or DUI is tough. Let us help.

All weekend we’ve warned of check points all over Northeast Ohio this Halloween. There were a few last night, and we have details on more tonight.

There will be one in Warren 9 p.m. – 1 a.m. They will do two locations. The first will be on US-422. The second will be on Summit Street between US-422 and State Route 45.

There will also be a check point in Stow tonight around Stow High School. For those that are going to the Halloween celebration at Kent State, this is right around the corner.

There will also be saturation points all over Northeast Ohio tonight. The moral of the story? Designate a driver before you go out.

Have a safe and candy-filled weekend. We’ll see you next week.

No matter how many times we post information about how dangerous it is to drive drunk, people still do it. Here’s another reason not to: The Ohio State Highway Patrol sent out a press release to its media partners yesterday stating there would be check points across the state looking for DUI and OVI this weekend.

This means two things. One, The Ohio State Highway Patrol finally respects us as media partner, as it sent us the release. (We also practice law, in case you haven’t heard). Two, if you’re going to go out and drink this weekend, designate a driver.

Here is the information from the press release:

COLUMBUS- The Ohio State Highway Patrol announced today that troopers will operate an OVI checkpoint to deter and intercept impaired drivers this week.

The county where the checkpoint will take place will be announced the day prior to the checkpoint, and the location will be announced the morning of the checkpoint.

“Based on provisional data, there were 338 OVI-related fatal crashes in which 370 people were killed last year in Ohio,” Colonel David W. Dicken, superintendent of the Patrol, said. “State troopers made 24,245 OVI arrests last year in combating these dangerous drivers. OVI checkpoints are designed to not only deter impaired driving, but to proactively remove these dangerous drivers from our roadways.”

OK, we had to take some time away from the Ohio OVI Blog lately because a few guys from our office were asked to try out at quarterback for the Cleveland Browns. Not sure what will come of that, but it looks like one of us will get the start against the Steelers this Sunday.

Nonetheless, we’re back with our weekly check point list.

It looks as though there aren’t too many check points out there this weekend – although we did not receive news one way or another from The Ohio Highway Patrol, which handles check points in Lakewood – but there may be some coming up in Elyria and Akron/Summit County. We’ll keep you posted.

As always, our best advice is to not drive drunk. It’s a simple way to keep everyone safe. If you do make a mistake and find yourself dealing with an OVI/DUI case, we handle that at Taubman Law, so go ahead and contact us. Or you can visit our Cuyahoga County DUI site for more information about that part of our practice.

Anyway, here’s the list of places we checked today. Have a great weekend. Go Browns.

Akron/Summit County – No, but they might have one on Halloween weekend.
Beachwood – NO
Bedford – NO
Berea – NO
Brecksville – NO
