Over the Christmas Holiday, the Ohio State Highway Patrol were pretty busy as Troopers from the St. Clairsville and Steubenville posts arrested 14 impaired drivers, and investigated 35 traffic crashes.

Now going into the New Year, they are using Federal Funding to put additional Troopers on the roadway.

Ohio State Highway Patrol, Post Commander, Lieutenant James Faunda reminds you to be responsible, make sure you have a designated driver, and wear your seat-belt, because the Highway Patrol will be out in force for the next couple of days.
