The Tennessee Highway Patrol will conduct two driver’s license roadside safety checkpoints this month in Roane County.

The first will be from 1 to 2 p.m. Dec. 6 at Eagle Furnace and Winton Chapel roads near Rockwood.

The second checkpoint will be from 8 to 9 p.m. Dec. 13 on Pumphouse Road at Arp Drive near Rockwood.

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.
