If you're doing some early celebrating for St. Patrick's Day, be careful how much you celebrate before getting on the road.

The Mahoning County OVI Task Force is conducting an OVI checkpoint in Mahoning County Saturday, March 16.

The checkpoint will be in the area of 483 N. Canfield Niles Road in Austintown from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m.

This checkpoint will be accompanied by saturation patrols all throughout Mahoning County during the weekend where officers will be patrolling various parts of the county to intercept impaired drivers.

The Mahoning County OVI Task Force is reminding drivers that if they plan on drinking to make good decisions and not get behind the wheel.

A 1990 U.S. Supreme Court ruling states that failure to notify drivers of a checkpoint in advance would be considered illegal search and seizure.
