DUI checkpoints announced, this weekend in Franklin
Friday night, the Franklin Police Department will conduct sobriety checkpoints on Hillsboro Road and on Royal Oaks Boulevard to help stop impaired drivers. Checkpoints are one of the many traffic safety measures the FPD uses to prevent DUI crashes. We ask Franklin drivers to exercise caution and never drive while impaired.
Through grant funding awarded by the Tennessee Highway Safety Office, the FPD is provided with support and resources that help to combat impaired driving, including sobriety checkpoints, saturation patrols, training, equipment, and overtime pay for Franklin Police Officers conducting those checkpoints and patrols.
