The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports sobering facts: 28 people in the U.S. die each day in motor vehicle accidents that involve an alcohol-impaired driver. According to calculations by the U.S. Department of Transportation, this is one death every 53 minutes. Driving Under the Influence (DUI) – also known as Operating a Motor Vehicle while under the Influence (OVI) in Ohio – is a serious charge. While your best action is to avoid drinking and driving, it is also helpful to know where the Sandusky DUI checkpoints are this summer.
