Fans don’t let fans drive drunk

DUI checkpoint announced, this weekend in Franklin

Post Date:01/30/2019 3:00 PM

Late Sunday night, the Franklin Police Department will conduct a sobriety checkpoint on Murfreesboro Road 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.

Did you know that Tennessee law requires the pre-publication of sobriety checkpoints?
