Two OVI checkpoints to be held in Elyria

The Ohio State Highway Patrol and the Elyria Police Department will hold two OVI checkpoints tonight in Elyria.

The checkpoints, held from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m., will be on Middle Avenue at 6th Street, and Cleveland Street near state Route 57.

The checkpoints are funded by federal funds and are planned to deter and intercept impaired drivers. They will also be held in conjunction with nearby saturation patrols to aggressively combat alcohol-related injury and fatal crashes.
