THP plans St. Patty’s Day road blocks

The Tennessee Highway Patrol will be conducting Sobriety Checkpoints in Gibson and Weakley counties on March 17.

Recognizing the danger presented to the public by intoxicated drivers, troopers will concentrate their efforts on vehicles being operated by drivers who would violate the law by operating under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol has found these Sobriety Checkpoints to be an effective mans of enforcing the Driving Under the Influence statutes of Tennessee while ensuring the protection of all motorists.
