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.
Cleveland – There will be a driver’s license checkpoint Friday night in the Second District. It will be at West 33rd and Broadview between 8 pm and 1 am.
Euclid – Will have one Friday night from 10 pm to 2 am on State Route 283.

Got some new info on South Euclid … checkpoint is starting on Green Rd. north of Monticello. 2nd stop is Belvoir in front of quarry south. Finally on Mayfield, eastbound, in front of McDonalds! They are moving it around all night.

Good Thursday evening to you, Ohio.
We have details on two checkpoints on Friday. The first one is in Akron on Friday night. The checkpoint will be on West Market Street from 10 pm to 2 am.
The second check point, from information from our friends at Hastie Law, will be in Columbus on W. Broad ST. just west of I-70 interchange. 9pm-3am.
As of now, these are the only posts we’ve received word on in the Northeast and central Ohio area. We will obviously circle back if we hear anything else.
Until then, enjoy the lovely weather.

Happy Friday, Ohio. We wanted to give you an update to our checkpoint lists from yesterday with some details.
First, the Euclid checkpoint for tonight will be somewhere between 200-222nd street, which is around the area where it was last weekend. They caught several intoxicated drivers in that one, so remember to designate a driver if you’re heading out this weekend. This checkpoint will be 11 pm to 3 am.
Second, Summit County will have a checkpoint in Coventry Township by Portage Lake tonight from 10 pm through 2 am.
Yesterday we did more detailed posts on checkpoints throughout Ohio.
Here is our full post from yesterday about Northeast Ohio.
Here is our full post from yesterday about the Columbus area.
Please celebrate America in a safe way this weekend. Aside from the checkpoints there will be saturation points all over Ohio as police look for intoxicated drivers. If you want to have a few drinks, please take a cab or designate a driver.

There will be a checkpoint in Coventry Township tonight. We were unable to get the full details, but in general these run from 8 or 9 pm until 1 or 2 in the morning. As always, we recommend that you designate a driver now if you want to drink tonight. Keep our roads safe!
Spring has truly sprung in Northeast Ohio. After weeks of rain, rain, rain and rain, the sunshine is upon us and the weather is made for grilling and golf.
Unfortunately, the warmer weather means there will be drinking and driving. As such, the checkpoints throughout the area are turned up a notch this week.
Here’s what we know so far. There will for sure be three checkpoints tonight: Euclid, South Euclid and East Cleveland.
East Cleveland – There will be one from 9 pm through 2 am today, although we don’t have details on a location.
Euclid – There will be a checkpoint on Marginal between 200-222nd street from 10 pm to 2 am.
South Euclid – Police here will have one on Green Road near Monticello or Mayfield by Belvor from 10:30 pm t0 2:30 am.
In the coming weeks we already know of more scheduled checkpoints. While Summit County has none that we heard of this week, there will be on June 10 in Coventry Township and one on June 17 in Akron. We’ll share the details when we know more.
We have also heard about one in North Royalton on June 24.
One last note for you this week: There was a checkpoint in Lakewood yesterday evening that we failed to post until after it started because of a miscommunication with our sources. We try to avoid that, but admit that despite our good looks and popular Facebook page we are not perfect. We will work to avoid mistakes like this whenever possible.
Have a great weekend. Remember to drive safely and to designate a driver if you’re going to drink.
