Well, we’d love to dive right into checkpoints across the state of Ohio, but the only two we know about so far are in Cleveland.
Cleveland: Can you talk right now? Are your minds still completely blown by this TRich trade? Let us know when you have a moment. When you do, here’s what we know so far for this weekend.
Parma has a DUI checkpoint that is scheduled for today (Thursday) from 6 pm to 1 am at State and Tuxedo.
The city of Cleveland has just sent us a notice that it will have an OVI checkpoint Friday night in the Fifth District. This is in addition to the license checkpoint we told you about earlier in the week. The OVI checkpoint will be held at Superior Avenue from Parkwood to E. 108 west bound. It will take place from 9 pm – 2 am.
Garfield Heights is going to have a checkpoint Saturday at Broadway and Forestdale. They did not release a time, but expect it to be somewhere in the 7 pm to 2 am range.
As always, our sources are pulled together by the fine folks at Taubman Law. They know their stuff. Call ‘em with your legal issues and you’ll get a top notch attorney.
Let’s talk checkpoints, Ohio.

The other is in Guernsey County from 6 to 10 pm on Friday night. This checkpoint will be on Route 313.

With Memorial Day weekend fast approaching and perhaps some sunshine, there will be plenty of people looking for a libation or two. That being said police forces across Northeast Ohio and the state will be out in force looking for impaired drivers this holiday weekend. I recommend reading our previous post about breathalyzers before you go out this weekend.
Below is a list of the cities that verified to us that they will be having a DUI checkpoint this weekend. Also, every station mentioned that they will have saturation patrols for the weekend. As always, don’t drink and drive, we recommend a taxi or designated driver. If you do find yourself in legal trouble this weekend contact BrianTaubman@taubmanlaw.net or call us at 216-621-0794.

We recently helped make sure a client got the best result possible in Garfield Heights Municipal Court. Our client was facing a Tier Three DUI, which is two total OVIs within six years along with a refusal to blow. Needless to say, this was a grave concern for our client, and we worked hard to make sure we presented the best case possible. In the end, the charges were reduced to a first time defense, ensuring our client’s criminal record wasn’t heavily damaged. Moreover, this result will keep insurance rates from skyrocketing.
