Sobriety Checkpoint DUI Checkpoint sign

The Williamson County Sheriff’s Office will conduct a roadside sobriety checkpoint on Saturday, May 29, to coincide with the Memorial Day weekend.

The checkpoint will take place on State Route 96 East as the Interstate 840 overpass from 7-9 p.m.

In addition to the checkpoint, drivers will see increased patrols throughout the weekend, as well as an increase in seatbelt enforcement which will continue through June 6

"The WCSO urges everyone to drive safely and responsibly. If you are out celebrating  the Memorial Day holiday weekend with alcohol, use a designated driver," a WCSO news release reads.

That news release also sates that funding for the checkpoint from grants provided by the Tennessee Highway Safety Office.

Law enforcement agencies are required by state law to announce sobriety checkpoint locations and times.
