The Tennessee Highway Patrol will conduct driver license roadside safety checkpoints during the week of Aug. 14 on U.S. Hwy. 27 North at the Morgan County line in Roane County.

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.
