    Open Carry Ohio Turnpike Plazas

    Tried doing a search and nothing popped up.

    Does anyone open carry in the turnpike plazas? I generally get on/off at Rt 4 and stop at the plaza at mp100.

    I'm trying to make OC part of my daily routine like CCing is.

    Thanks

    I never have. I don't get up that way very often.
    In the open area of the plaza, yes.
    In the buildings I'm not sure. I think the buildings are owned by the state.
    But, I do know state troopers cannot give you a speeding ticket under ORC 4511.21.

    Last time I was on the Ohio turnpike the new plazas were all posted no weapons. That was in 2012.

    SB184 allows for CC in certain government buildings; primary purpose is a shelter, parking areas and visitor centers. If that building contains a court or police station still off limits.

    I haven't seen signs at a rest area for seveal years.

    I'm not sure if I want to be an example; er...test case.

    As for OSP being able to write speeding tickets; how can I get the several hundred of my dollars back? Also, would I have to pay back my company since I expensed three tickets as entertainment?

    I did not say OSP could not write a speeding ticket. I said OSP could not write a speeding ticket under ORC 4511.21.

    Would that be under 5503.31?

    What does a caring, sensitive person feel when they are forced to use a handgun to stop a threat?

    Pretty sure the turnpike plazas were included when the law started allowing carry in the interstate rest areas.

    A good starting point. Try 5537.16.

    Hmm.

    How are unpaid speeding tickets handled if they occured on the turnpike? Can bench warrants be issued?

    How about multiple tickets? Do additional tickets qualify as higher level misdemeanors or do they remain civil violations?
