The Tennessee Highway Patrol will conduct several driver license roadside safety checkpoints in Moore County throughout the month of August.

The checkpoints will take place on August 3 at 6 p.m., August 4 at 7:30 p.m., August 10 at 1 p.m. and August 24 at 1 p.m. All four checkpoints will be set up at the 10.5 mile mark on S.R. 50 (Highway 50.)

“Recognizing the danger presented to the public by unqualified drivers, troopers will concentrate their efforts on vehicles being operated by drivers who violate the driver license laws of Tennessee,” stated a press release.

According to the THP, these driver license roadside safety checkpoints are an effective means of enforcing driver license laws of Tennessee while ensuring the protection of all motorists.
