Check Points Starting Today.
Looking for a list of DUI checkpoints? Well……….
If you don’t plan on driving while intoxicated over the next few days then you can skip this story and good for you..
The Tennessee Department Of Safety & Homeland Security is conducting the new “No Refusal” Driver License & Sobriety Checkpoints starting today (Friday) through Tuesday. “No Refusal” means you can’t say no to blood test. MORE …
For some strange reason (or quirk in the law) they release the locations and times of the checkpoints to the public. Many news agencies will follow suit and provide their readers with a list of the locations and times, but you will not find any such list on Smokey.
Many mid-state Counties are participating in the checkpoints including Robertson County, Cumberland, Wilson, Carroll, Bedford, Maury, Knox, Sevier, Hamilton, Marion, Carter, Greene, Overton, Crockett, Tipton, and Chester.
Be safe, if you drink at all call a cab. Don’t even make Smokey have to come film your upside-down car surrounded by police in 20 below temperatures as you go to jail.
