THP conducting sobriety checkpoints

The Tennessee Highway Patrol will conduct a sobriety roadside safety checkpoint in Jefferson County on Friday, Nov. 27 on State Route 92, near Dumplin Valley Road.

Lt. Kevin Kimbrough says the patrol will also conduct driver license roadside safety checkpoints throughout this week in the same area.

He says the THP also will conduct a sobriety roadside safety checkpoint on Friday at State Route 343, near Cherokee Drive in Hamblen County.

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.
