The Tennessee Highway Patrol will be conducting two driver license roadside safety checkpoints in Roane County during July.

The first checkpoint will be from 8 to 9 p.m. July 4 on Hwy. 27 at Poland Hollow Road.

Another checkpoint is planned from 7 to 8 p.m. July 13 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.
