Last year almost 300 people were arrested in Ohio for drinking and driving during the July 4th weekend.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol reported 296 OVI arrests, 276 arrests for drug-related charges and 297 crashes.
The stakes are always high when you drive impaired, but with a heightened police presence you are almost certain to face arrest for driving drunk.
News 5 Cleveland reported in 2017 over the same holiday weekend, “eight OVI-related fatal crashes took eight lives.”
Don’t let you or someone you know become this terrible statistic. Avoid getting behind the wheel and call #677 to report impaired drivers.
