The Ohio State Highway Patrol announced Saturday morning that a drunken driving checkpoint will be in Kent overnight.
The checkpoint is scheduled from 10 p.m. Saturday to 2 a.m. Sunday on State Route 59 near milepost 3.
The checkpoint is funded by federal grant funds 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," according to a OSHP press release. "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."
