The state Highway Patrol has announced troopers will operate a DUI check point and intercept impaired drivers this week.

“If you plan to consume alcohol, designate a driver or make other arrangements before you drink. Don’t let another life be lost for the senseless and selfish act of getting behind the wheel impaired,” said Lt. Chad Enderby, of the Mansfield post.

The county where the checkpoint will take place will be announced the day prior to the event and the location will be named the morning of the checkpoint.

Local law enforcement agencies will provide operational support for the sobriety checkpoint.

Nothing says freedom like check points inside our own boarders. So much for the fourth amendment

How is this a violation of the forth amendment?

Eleven states currently prohibit suspicion-less checkpoints within their boundaries. Michigan is still one of the 11 State's that explicitly prohibit sobriety checkpoints within its boundaries

Maybe if people were smart enough to not get behind the wheel after a night of drinking then there would be no need for check points. My son and daughters drive on the same roads as these idiots who feel they "are perfectly capable" after a six pack. Too many unnecessary deaths due to alcohol and personally I'm glad to see Ohio taking a stand against it. The only people against check points are the drunks behind the wheel of a 6,000 pound missile aimed at our friends and family.

Driving is a privilege not a right. Don't like it then don't drive or move.

I think it's funny to let the public know about this ahead of time. And say where! That has to be the dumbest thing yet. Were out to bust you, but hey, where here stop on by. There is no doubt somewhere someone in control has any idea how to bust. Set it up on Townsend Ave and get the people who throw this needles all down the road. Seen them and have picked them up.
