Patrol OVI checkpoint on Cadiz Road tonight

STEUBENVILLE — The Ohio State Highway Patrol, in conjunction with Cross Creek Police Department and the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department, announced today that an OVI checkpoint will be held from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. today on Cadiz Road in Jefferson County.

The OVI checkpoint, funded by federal grant funds, is planned to deter and intercept impaired drivers.

The checkpoint will be held in conjunction with nearby saturation patrols to aggressively combat impaired driver-related injury and fatal crashes.

If you plan to consume alcohol, designate a driver or make other travel arrangements before you drink.

Don’t let another life be lost for the senseless and selfish act of getting behind the wheel impaired.
