  The Mansfield post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol conducted a weekend OVI checkpoint at two local locations.

  One checkpoint was held on U.S. Route 42 near Hanley Road with the other at Ohio 430 near Illinois Avenue.

  The federally funded checkpoints were used to deter and intercept impaired drivers and were held in conjunction with nearby saturation patrols to aggressively combat alcohol-related injury and fatal accidents.

  The patrol says 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.
