Sobriety checkpoints scheduled this weekend

  Email   Print
The La Vergne Police Department will conduct Sobriety Checkpoints this weekend, August 2 and 3. Officers will be working overtime during this time to aggressively search for drivers who choose to drive after consuming alcohol. This overtime is paid from a grant funded by the Governor’s Highway Safety Office.

Sobriety checkpoints will not only help identify drivers who are under the influence, but also other alcohol violations, passenger restraint violations, and other similar violations that contribute to traffic crashes and injuries. Officers will set up saturation patrols on some of the busiest streets late in the evening and early mornings because studies show that this is the time when drunk driving tends to be the highest.
