Two Sobriety Checkpoints Planned for Tonight

Comments (0)

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.
