The Tennessee Highway Patrol will be conducting two driver license roadside safety checkpoints during May in Roane County.

A  checkpoint is planned from 10 to 11 a.m. May 6 near the new bridge on Hwy. 58.

Another checkpoint, from 9 to 10 p.m. May 20, will be at Hwy. 70 and Poland Hollow 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.
