MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Tenn. – The Clarksville Police Department (CPD), Tennessee Highway Patrol (THP), and Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) will conduct roadside safety checkpoints and saturation patrols Jan. 31-Feb. 2 in Clarksville, Montgomery County.

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

Troopers, deputies, and officers will be out in force conducting D.U.I. saturation patrol along with seatbelt enforcement. This Enforcement Blitz is the startup for the Governor’s Highway Safety Office (G.H.S.O.) SAFE Campaign (SEATBELTS ARE FOR EVERYONE) that will run Feb. 1-Aug. 1.

Law enforcement will target those who operate a vehicle while impaired and take corrective actions for other violations observed while ensuring the protection of all motorists.

THP, CPD, AND MCSO recognize that checkpoints are highly visible and effective tools in the battle against impaired driving and increasing seatbelt usage.

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