THP To Conduct Roadside Safety Checkpoints

The Tennessee Highway Patrol will be conducting Driver License Checkpoints 02-18-2011 on State Route 146 in Cannon County.

Recognizing the danger presented to the public by drivers operating motor vehicles under the influence and unqualified drivers, Troopers will concentrate their efforts on vehicles being operated by drivers who would violate the DUI laws and the driver license laws of Tennessee.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol has found these roadside safety checkpoints to be an effective means of enforcing the driver license laws of Tennessee while ensuring the protection of all Motorists.
