CINCINNATI -- State troopers took over the roads in full force Wednesday night, just in time for Thanksgiving travelers.
They're looking for drivers who may be under the influence.
It won't be as obvious as a checkpoint, but state troopers will have their eyes peeled for drivers who shouldn't be behind the wheel.
"No trooper, no deputy, no officer wants to be the one to have to come to your house and knock on the door and talk to a family member and tell them you're not going to make it home for the holiday," Sgt. Charles Jordan said.
In Ohio, there were 12 deaths in nine crashes over the Thanksgiving holiday in 2012. Seven of those involved impaired drivers.
"Anytime that it involves and child or a teenager," Jordan said, "that obviously hits home. But for the family member, that's the most important."
Troopers want help from the public to keep Tri-State roads safe. If anyone sees a driver who may be impaired, they are asked to call #677 or 911.
