The Tennessee Highway Patrol will conduct two driver license roadside safety checkpoints in April.

The first will be from  9 to 10 a.m. April 8 at Hwy. 70 at Poland Hollow Road.

Troopers will also check driver licenses during a roadside safety checkpoint from noon to 1 p.m. April 15 at Pansy Hill Road near Swan Pond Road.

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

THP officials said they have 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.
