Posted on Friday, June 20, 2014 at 5:53 am

The Tennessee Highway Patrol will be conducting driver license roadside safety checkpoints on June 20 on U.S. Highway 431 at the 2.6 mile marker in Lincoln County starting 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.
