  • Stanley Avenue and Troy Street from 6:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.
  • S. Smithville and Linden Avenue from 6:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.

The other checkpoints were held Thursday night on E. Third Street and Wayne Avenue.

The OVI Task Force was designed to reduce the number of alcohol and drug-related car crashes, injuries, and deaths in Montgomery County.

“Sobriety checkpoints help deter impaired driving, and they aid in the apprehension of impaired drivers who choose to get behind the wheel and drive,” the spokesperson said.
