Troopers plan to stop impaired drivers along Anthony Wayne Trail

TOLEDO -- Officials will be out stopping impaired drivers Friday night at a checkpoint planned in Lucas County.

The OVI checkpoint will be held from 9 p.m. until midnight along the Anthony Wayne Trail.

The special enforcement is an attempt to aggressively combat alcohol-related injuries and fatal crashes, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

Law enforcement officials ask that if you plan to consume alcohol, designate a driver or make arrangements before you start drinking. "Don't let another life be lost for the senseless and selfish act of getting behind the wheel impaired," troopers have said.
