Hello Ohio. After a few weekends with dozens of checkpoints, this weekend looks to be a little slower.

As of now we have not received word of any checkpoints for this coming weekend. That said, we believe there will be increased patrols around Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati now that football season is in swing. We also know that there will be some checkpoints next weekend. Details on those will come next Thursday.

As of last weekend the state’s Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign has ended, and we’re looking to get some overall drinking and driving stats for summer 2011 soon. We’ll be doing a post on that to highlight the dangers of drinking and driving and show the overall improvement of the state in several categories.

As always, should you run into any trouble with OVI in Ohio, we know how to help you. In Northeast Ohio you can contact Taubman Law. In Central Ohio you can contact Hastie Legal Offices LLC.

A weekend that will likely be chalk full of checkpoints starts off with a checkpoint in Cleveland on Thursday night, according to a release from the city police.

The checkpoint will be at Fleet Ave. and East 57th Street. It will start at 7 pm and run through 12 am.

With Labor Day upon us, expect checkpoints all over Ohio as the crackdown on drunk driving continues. Our recommendation, as always, is to designate a driver if you’re going to be out drinking. Trust us, at Taubman Law and Hastie Legal Offices we deal with OVI cases all of the time and you don’t want to get mixed up in one.

Ohio’s Highway Patrol planned twice as many sobriety checkpoints this year as it had in 2010 thanks to a federal grant. More than a quarter of those took place this past weekend. The patrol planned 27 checkpoints this weekend. Increasingly, they are seeing people driving dangerously because of narcotics both illegal and prescription. In some cases officers can look at the direction the suspect’s eyes are moving to determine whether they are intoxicated on alcohol versus pills.
The Cleveland Police department is continuing the trend on cracking down on drivers and announced today that they will be doing a license checkpoint on Monday. The checkpoint is between the hours of 10:00 a.m and 14:00 p.m. on St Clair between East 93rd Street and East 96th.
If you or anybody you know ran into any legal problems this weekend, contact us for professional and courteous help.

Things have finally cooled off across the state, giving us all a much-needed break from the heat.

But we’ll tell you what hasn’t cooled off: The Police’s desire to stop drunk driving!

OK, that was probably one of our worst attempts at a transition here at the Ohio OVI Blog, but every post can’t be on par with a David Foster Wallace novel, right? Let’s get down to business. It’s summer and lots of people are out enjoying a few adult beverages. But responsible drivers everywhere are taking cabs and designating drivers to get home safely. We hope you’re doing the same. The police are doing there part to catch drunk drivers, and we’ve heard news on four checkpoints so far for this weekend and into next week.

The first will be in Seven Hills Saturday night. It will be from 7 pm to 1 am at Rockside at Pinnacle Park.

In Central Ohio, we have details on two checkpoints so far.

One is in Millersport (Fairfield County) tonight. It will be on State Route 204, just east of State Route 37. This is near Buckeye Lake.

The other is in Plain City (Madison County). It will also be tonight and will be on State Route 42 near W. Main Street. It will be right by the Der Dutchman restaurant, a place we’re sure you Plain City locals know well.

The last checkpoint we’ve heard about will be in Cleveland. It will be Monday night, but the details have not yet been released.

In other news, we’ve heard that Rover fest – which takes place in Eastlake – will be hopping this weekend. It sold out, and the police will have strong saturation points throughout the area to monitor safety. It’s likely there will also be liquor control mechanisms in place, including undercover agents. If you’re heading out to see Rover (or just to see Ms. Morning Glory), be safe and be smart.

That’s all we have for now. Remember, we keep this blog to warn people of the dangers of drunk driving. But we also want all drivers to know they have legal rights. Should you get mixed up in an OVI or DUI case, we have lawyers who know how to help you. Find out more at the sites for Taubman Law (Northeast Ohio) or Hastie Legal Offices (Central Ohio).
