SPRINGFIELD — The Clark County OVI Task Force will be operating a rolling OVI checkpoint in Clark County Friday Aug. 22, to intercept impaired drivers as part of our ongoing enforcement efforts. The details will be released Friday morning.
A rolling checkpoint means that multiple locations will be set up in Clark County in one evening. This is part of the Drive Sober Get Pulled Over national campaign. The focus of enforcement and checkpoints will be to crack down on impaired operators of motor vehicles, speeding violations and seat belt enforcement. All law enforcement agencies will enforce a ZERO tolerance policy for these violations.
The OVI Task Force will hold a press conference at the first location (to be revealed Friday) starting at 7:15 p.m. The campaign began Aug. 15 and will conclude Sept. 1.
