Sat 7:03pm: OVI Task Force checkpoint set tonight

CANFIELD — The Mahoning County OVI Task Force and the Ohio State Highway Patrol will be conducting a drunken driving checkpoint from 10:30 tonight until 2:30 a.m. Sunday on Glenwood Avenue in Youngstown.

The Task Force also will conduct saturation patrols in various parts of the county throughout the weekend.

The goal is to “aggressively combat alcohol-related injury and fatal crashes,” according to a Task Force statement released today.

The OVI — operating a vehicle while intoxicated — checkpoint is funded by federal grants.
