It’s nearly the weekend, so it’s time for us to update you on checkpoints throughout Ohio.

So far we’ve only heard about one for this (hopefully) sunny weekend.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol will have a checkpoint in Portage County on Saturday night. They will release the time and date information on Saturday morning. We will try to circle back with them for details.

As always, our list is not exhaustive as we depend on several sources for our information. If you hear of another checkpoint feel free to contact us or post it on our Facebook page. We would also do our regular reminder that this blog does not support drinking and driving in any way. We report checkpoints to keep people aware of their rights and raise awareness about how cops are looking to stop drinking and driving. Our advice is always to designate a driver if you’re going to drink.

Opening Day…

As many of you know, last year we did a wonderful article on drinking while watching baseball. One of our intrepid reporters wore an ankle monitor while enjoying the festivities of Cleveland Indians’ opening day. We did the same this year, only this time our undercover source also had a breathalyzer. Apparently he lived this year’s experience to the max, however, and he still hasn’t filed his story. If you saw our writer out on the beat, and you see him again, tell him to sober up and send in his post. In the meantime, enjoy last year’s post again and keep checking back. As soon as we have it, you’ll get to read it.

See you next week. Same time(ish), same blog.

Cleveland is full of good attorneys, but you need Taubman Law if you’re looking for a great attorney who will care about you. The team at Taubman Law handles OVI/DUI, personal injury and workers’ comp cases.

Summer is starting to wind down and football is upon us. This is a mixed blessing, of course, but we like football at the Ohio OVI Blog, so we’re feeling pretty good.

But the end of summer has police out in droves around the state. Already we have word of checkpoints throughout Ohio, and the details are below.

Since there are so many this week, we have broken the checkpoints down by day. We have called the usual areas and will update you if we hear more. We’re also still waiting to hear updates from our friends in Central Ohio.

As always, our recommendation is that you avoid drinking and driving at all cost. This will keep us all safe. Should you get charged with OVI in Ohio, however, we want to ensure your rights are defended. The law firms of Taubman Law (Northeast Ohio) and Hastie Law Offices (Central Ohio) have experience taking care of their clients.

Without further ado, here’s this week’s list.

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. Feel free to give us a call or shoot us an email if you ever need anything.

In the meantime, enjoy the stuffing and eat the last piece of pie while nobody is looking.
