CheckpointThe Tennessee Highway Patrol will be conducting driver license roadside safety checkpoints during the week of April 1 on State Route 50 at mile marker 15.8 starting at 3 p.m. in Lincoln County.

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 THP 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.
