Law enforcement in Columbiana County kicked off their campaign to curtail impaired driving Tuesday.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol conducted a presentation on the dangers of drunk driving at the Columbiana County Department of Job and Family Services.

More law police and troopers will be watching for impaired drivers through the holiday weekend.

Last year, 494 people died in Ohio in alcohol-related crashes.

“We’re in a very very important time of the year,” said OSHP Lt. Joe Dragovich. “School is starting, the young folks will be going to the extra-curricular activities, the ball games, and we just want to make the roads safe. And alcohol has no place on the road.”
