An O.V.I. checkpoint is a legal stop the government can make if you’re driving. Basically, the United States Supreme Court, along with the Ohio Supreme Court, has made it lawful for the police officers to set up a checkpoint and stop random amounts of cars to determine whether or not they are drinking.

In Ohio, just because the checkpoints are legal, what’s missing? Bad driving, because, typically, people at a checkpoint are able to stop their car for the police officer … talk to the police officer, but don’t do any tests for the police officer. You don’t have to.

Being charged with a criminal offense or a DUI in Ohio can be quite serious. It can affect your job, your livelihood, your income, and even your freedom.
