The Tennessee Highway Patrol will be conducting driver license roadside safety checkpoints in Roane County during November.
The first checkpoint will be the week of Nov. 6 at Hwy. 70 and Poland Hollow Road. The checkpoint will be from 10 to 11 a.m.
On the week of Nov. 13, the THP will have a checkpoint at Pansy Hill Road near Swan Pond Road. The time for that checkpoint will be from 11 p.m. to midnight.
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.
