Local law enforcement to conduct roadside safety checkpoints

Story by Officer Natalie Hall, CPD

MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Tenn. – The Clarksville Police Department, Tennessee Highway Patrol and Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department will be conducting roadside safety checkpoints and saturation patrols Nov. 29 and 30 in Clarksville and Montgomery County.

The checkpoints will be located on U.S. 41-A Bypass and Kraft Street. Saturation Patrols will be on U.S. 41-A & U.S. 79, Tenn. State Routes 374, 12, 13, 48, 76, and 236.

Troopers, deputies, and officers will also be out in force conducting DUI saturation patrols. Impaired driving is a serious crime that kills more than 16,000 people and injures 305,000 others every year in the United States. Law enforcement will evaluate drivers for signs of alcohol impairment and target those who operate a vehicle while impaired and take corrective actions for other violations observed while ensuring the protection of all motorists.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol, Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department, and The Clarksville Police Department recognize that sobriety checkpoints are highly visible and effective tools in the battle against impaired driving.

The checkpoints and saturation patrols are partially funded by the Tennessee Governor’s Highway Safety Office.
