Two sobriety checkpoints will be set up on the North Side tonight.

The first, at Karl Road and Penworth Drive, will run from 9 to 11 p.m.

The second, on Cleveland Avenue north of Fuji Drive, will run from 1 to 3 a.m. Saturday.

“The locations for each sobriety checkpoint demonstrate a clear statistical need to raise public awareness of the impaired-driver problem,” Sgt. Michael Smith of the Columbus police traffic bureau said in a release.

For example, Penworth is south of E. Dublin-Granville Road, where the intersection with Karl was the site of 15 impaired-driver crashes from 2009 through 2013, police said.

During that five-year period, 4.2 percent of the non-freeway crashes in Columbus involved an impaired driver, police said.
