BELMONT COUNTY, Ohio – The Ohio State Highway Patrol, in conjunction with the Martins Ferry and Bridgeport Police, have announced an OVI checkpoint will be held from 11 p.m. to 3 a.m. tonight on Ohio 7 in Belmont County.

The checkpoint, funded by federal grants, 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.
