Boardman OVI location announced

Posted: Updated:
BOARDMAN, Ohio -

Law enforcement agencies are out in force this coming weekend to crack down on impaired drivers. 

The Mahoning County OVI Task Force announced Saturday that a checkpoint will be conducted tonight on Market Street near Ferncliffe near Akron Children's Hospital in Boardman from 10 pm until 2 am.

In addition, saturation patrols will be conducted throughout the weekend.

Officials say the primary goal of the Task Force is to make Valley roadways safer. 

According to the Task Force, the locations of the checkpoint will be announced later in the week. 

In 1990 the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that holding sobriety checkpoints without first notifying drivers would violate the Constitution's provision barring illegal search and seizure.

In their ruling, however, the justices did not spell out what they considered to be adequate notification.

That same year, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration published recommended procedures for OVI checkpoints which included notifying the media of the planned roadblocks.

Increase patrols have also been announced in Pennsylvania.
