The Ohio State Highway Patrol, in conjunction with the Brown County Sheriff’s Office and Mt. Orab Police Department, announced today that an OVI checkpoint will be held from 9 p.m. until 11 p.m/ tonight on US 68 just south of SR 32 in the village of Mt. Orab, Brown County.

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

The checkpoint will also be held in conjunction with nearby saturation patrols to aggressively combat alcohol-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.
