The Franklin County DUI Task Force will be conducting a sobriety checkpoint in Westerville Friday night.
The checkpoint will be located on Cleveland Avenue south of Hanawalt Road between the hours of 7 p.m. and midnight.
The Task Force wants to remind people who will be drinking to plan for a designated driver or make other arrangements.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Why are the locations and times of a sobriety checkpoint released?
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.
