DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - The Dayton Police Department along with members of the Combined Agency OVI Task Force of Montgomery County will operate two no refusal sobriety checkpoints Saturday night.
The checkpoints will be held 9 p.m. in the area of North Gettysburg and Kings Highway and North Gettysburg and Fruedenberger.
The goal of the OVI task force is to reduce the number of alcohol and drug related traffic crashes, injuries, and fatalities in Dayton and Montgomery County.
