-A A +A

The Tennessee Highway Patrol will conduct three driver license roadside checkpoints next month in Roane County.

The first will be the week of March 2 at Eagle Furnace and Winton Chapel roads.

Another will be the week of March 9 on Pine Ridge Road near the railroad tracks.

The final checkpoint in Roane County will be the week of March 23 at Hwys. 58 and 72.

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.
