Drunken Driving Checkpoint in Kent Saturday Night

Click on the link to find out the exact location and time of the checkpoint conducted by the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

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."

So we need grant money for this? I thought catching drunk drivers what's in their job description

Where is mile post 3?

well Bob, from what I can see from my apartment, mile post 3 is right around Rockne's and Henry Wahners (I think I misspelled that). I think that explains the lack of traffic on SR 59 tonight, especially coming from the west.
