The Tennessee Highway Patrol will conduct three driver license roadside safety checkpoints in March.

The first will be from 8 to 9 a.m. March 1 on Hwy. 27 at the Morgan County line.

A second checkpoint will be from 1 to 2 p.m. March 8 on Pine Ridge Road at the railroad tracks.

The final one will be from 10 to 11 p.m. March 22 on 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.
