Posted on Friday, January 24, 2014 at 6:07 am

The Tennessee Highway Patrol will also be conducting driver license roadside safety checkpoints during the week of Jan. 24 on State Route 122 at the 1.1-mile marker beginning at 9 p.m.

Recognizing the danger presented to the public by unqualified drivers, troopers will concentrate their efforts on vehicles being operated by drivers who violate the driver license laws of Tennessee.

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