People driving through Columbiana County may encounter a sobriety checkpoint sometime this week.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol announced on Monday that troopers will conduct an OVI checkpoint to not only catch impaired drivers but deter them as well.

Troopers say they will reveal the location the morning of the checkpoint.

The patrol says it announces plans to conduct a checkpoint five days before the enforcement.

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.
