STARK COUNTY, Ohio (WJW) – Two sobriety checkpoints will be held in Massillon on Wednesday night.

The Stark County Sheriff announced the checkpoint times and locations in a press release.


  • 6 p.m. at 611 Erie St. South
  • 8:30 p.m. at 110 Lincoln Way West

Sheriff George Maier said in the release, “We want to strongly recommend to those who will be
consuming alcohol to plan for a designated driver or make other arrangements.”

According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, in 1990, the United States Supreme Court reviewed and upheld the legality of sobriety checkpoints as a law enforcement tool, but several guidelines must be met. Public notification is one of them.
