The Tennessee Highway Patrol will be conducting driver license roadside safety checkpoints at the 2.6-mile marker on U.S. Highway 431 here in Lincoln County beginning at 9 p.m. on Friday, May 30.

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.
