There is a major police presence in Dayton’s Oregon District as St. Patrick’s Day festivities are well underway. We have previously reported that the Kettering Police Department has begun St. Patrick’s Day enforcement which will last until 3 a.m. [story HERE].
The Greene County Sheriff has announced that their department will conduct saturation patrols during the holiday. This usually means higher than usual patrols near the Mall at Fairfield Commons and The Greene. In addition, the Ohio Investigative Unit is warning of increased enforcement for underage alcohol sales (story from WDTN HERE). The DUI BLITZ will last well into the morning.
Two OVI checkpoints have been set for Montgomery County. The first will be in Washington Township at Marshall & Hyde Park beginning at 5 p.m. and running until 7 p.m.
A second OVI checkpoint will take place in Montgomery County along Miamisburg-Centerville Road near Congress beginning at 8 p.m. and ending around 10 p.m.
If you want to receive updated information on sobriety checkpoints, enhanced traffic enforcement, saturation patrols and other important DUI BLITZ developments that affect you, sign up for text alerts on the main page of this blog. OVI checkpoint alerts will be sent directly to your mobile device/smartphone in the location you choose in the Miami Valley. In the past month we have alerted our followers to the State Route 35 traffic initiative and three local sobriety checkpoints. You should also know that we respect your trust and we will never send you irrelevant information and/or advertisements. This service is free and available to the general public.
You can also put DaytonDUI on your Android Smart phone via the DaytonDUI app. The app helps you know your rights and know yourself by providing a drink tally so that you do not overindulge. You can send safe drinking tips to friends or use the app to find the nearest taxi for a safe trip home. The app brings you the best of DaytonDUI’s video and audio content and gives you a chance to take pictures and record memories so that you can aid in your own defense. We provide OVI checkpoint information because our sincere desire is to make our roads a safer place.
St. Patrick’s Day also sees the return of free cab rides; Montgomery County residents can get a free cab ride home. Just call 449-9999. The program lasts all weekend.
