COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The Franklin County DUI Task Force will hold two sobriety checkpoints tonight to combat impaired driving.
The checkpoints will be on Cleveland Avenue near Hanawalt Road in Westerville (Click for Map View) and Schrock Road near Garden Terrace Road (Click for Map View) in the city of Columbus.
The Franklin County DUI Task Force members will conduct the sobriety check between 7 p.m. and 11:30 p.m.
The task force says it wants to impress upon those who will be consuming alcohol to plan for a designated driver or make other arrangements.Guidelines issued by the NHTSA instruct law enforcement to “aggressively” publicize the locations.
The goal, according to the NHTSA, is to not only to deter impaired drivers from getting behind the wheel, but also to assure the protection of constitutional rights for both police and the public.
