The Lorain County OVI Task Force has announced it will hold a checkpoint for potentially impaired drivers from 6 p.m. to midnight on Oberlin Avenue in Lorain.

Because of court rulings, law enforcement officials are required to announce in advance the time and location of the checkpoint to avoid Fourth Amendment violations against unreasonable search and seizure.

Officers from Lorain, Sheffield Village, Avon and North Ridgeville, as well as sheriff’s deputies and state troopers, will be participating in the checkpoint, which is funded by federal grant money.
