Sobriety Checkpoint Scheduled for June 22


From 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Friday, June 22, 2018, the Cheatham County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) will conduct a sobriety checkpoint and saturation patrol in the area of Highway 41-A near Jackson Felts. A second checkpoint is scheduled from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Saturday June 30, 2018, in the area of Highway 70 near Cedar Hill Road or in the area of East Kingston Springs Road.

These checkpoints are implemented in order to crack down on impaired driving in Cheatham County. Non-compliance with safety belt and child restraint 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 a later date.”

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.
