The Franklin Police Department will conduct two sobriety checkpoints on Friday to help stop impaired drivers.

The checkpoint locations on S. Royal Oaks Boulevard and on Hillsboro Road are among the many traffic safety measures used to help prevent DUI crashes.

The Franklin Police Department asks Franklin drivers to exercise caution and never drive while impaired.

Through grant funding awarded by the Tennessee Highway Safety Office, police departments are 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? Learn more at http://bit.ly/1HvvYec.
