The Tennessee Highway Patrol will be conducting safety belt, and sobriety road side checkpoints on Friday on Highway 11 at the 11 mile marker,  in Giles County.

Troopers will evaluate drivers for signs of alcohol or drug impairment, and who operate a vehicle while impaired and take corrective action.

They will also target those who operate a vehicle while unbelted and take corrective action for other violations observed.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol realize these check points are highly visible and effective tools in the battle against impaired driving, and an effective means of enforcing the safety belt laws of Tennessee.
