Sobriety Checkpoints Planned Across Central Ohio

/

There are four sobriety check points planned for tonight across the middle of Ohio. If you plan on going out, having a drink, or just want to be aware, keep these areas in mind.

The checkpoints are planned for the following areas:

  • Crawford County, near County Road 330, west of U.S. 30 and ear of Stelzer Road. The checkpoint will be stationed there approximately from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m.
  • Delaware County, near Sawmill Parkway. The checkpoints will be there from around 9 p.m. to 1 a.m.
  • Hilliard, near Hilliard-Rome Road by Richlanne Drive. Expect to see the checkpoints there from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m.
  • Jackson Township, by U.S. 62 and Rensch Road. The roadblock will be posted from 8:30 p.m. to 1:30 a.m.

We hope that you practice safe tactics in regard to drinking and driving. Some things you might want to remember about when driving past a DUI Checkpoint:

  • Cops cannot search your car without probable cause or your permission
  • Under the 5th Amendment, you can refuse to answer any of the police officer’s questions
  • You can deny taking the Breathalyzer test
  • You can deny partaking in the Field Sobriety Exercises, but the police can still arrest you, if they feel like there is probable cause of you drinking and driving.
