From 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Friday, May 4, the Cheatham County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) will conduct a sobriety checkpoint and saturation patrol in the area of Highway 12 near Cheatham Dam Rd./ Neptune Rd. to crack down on impaired driving in Cheatham County. However, as non-compliance with the safety belt and child restraint laws place people in danger, these laws will be vigorously enforced as well.
"The Sheriff’s Office recognizes that roadside sobriety checkpoints are highly visible and effective tools in the battle against impaired driving,” said Sheriff Mike Breedlove. “In the event of inclement weather, the initiative will be rescheduled for Friday May 18.”
The CCSO reminds citizens to buckle up, drive alert, and always find a sober ride home.
This enforcement initiative is funded solely by the Tennessee Highway Safety Office.
