Local Sobriety Checkpoint Scheduled for October 9

From 4 p.m. to 12 a.m. on Saturday, October 9th, 2021, the Cheatham County Sheriff’s Office in coordination with The Pleasant View Police Department will conduct a sobriety checkpoint and saturation patrol in the area of Highway 41-A between Highway 49 and Maxey Rd.

The focus of this event is to detect and deter impaired drivers, however, as non-compliance with the safety belt and child restraint laws, and distracted driving place people in danger, these laws will also 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. The Cheatham County Sheriff's Office 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.
