A sobriety checkpoint is planned in Perry County on Friday.  The Lancaster Post of the State Highway Patrol says the checkpoint is funded by federal grant funds and is planned to deter and intercept impaired drivers.  Lieutenant Craig Cvetan says last year in Ohio there were 382 O-V-I related fatal crashes in which 413 people were killed.  He says that troopers on average make 25-thousand impaired driving arrests each year in order to combat dangerous drivers.  The location of the checkpoint will be announced Friday morning.
