Law enforcement will conduct an OVI checkpoint from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Saturday on North Main Street in Bryan.

The checkpoint was announced Friday by the Ohio State Highway Patrol, in conjunction with the Bryan Police Department and the Williams County Sheriff’s Office.

The effort is paid for by federal grant funds and is planned to deter and intercept impaired drivers.

The checkpoint will also 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,” stated a release sent to The Bryan Times by the OSHP. “Don’t let another life be lost for the senseless and selfish act of getting behind the wheel impaired.”
