The State Highway Patrol will hold an OVI checkpoint Thursday night in Peninsula.

The checkpoint, at 500 West Streetsboro Road, will run from 9 pm. to midnight.

The OVI checkpoint, funded by federal grant funds, is planned to deter and intercept impaired drivers.

The checkpoint will also be held in conjunction with The National Park Service Rangers and nearby saturation patrols to aggressively combat alcohol-related injury and fatal crashes, according to the Highway Patrol.

They advise that if you plan to consume alcohol, designate a driver or make other travel arrangements before you drink.
