THP to conduct checkpoint
thp badge w sm

The Tennessee Highway Patrol will conduct a seatbelt checkpoint Nov. 9 on Highway 56 North, and a sobriety checkpoint, Nov. 27 on Highway 70 East.

Recognizing that an alarmingly high number of vehicle occupants killed in fatal crashes were unrestrained, the Tennessee Highway Patrol has elected to create an enforcement campaign aimed at drastically reducing the number of unrestrained drivers and occupants.


Officers will also be on active patrol observing for unrestrained drivers and occupants of motor vehicles.


The Tennessee Highway Patrol has found seatbelt checkpoints to be an effective means of enforcing seatbelt and child restraint laws of Tennessee while ensuring the protection of all motorists.
