Cookeville THP District Announces Roadblocks

The Cookeville district of the Tennessee Highway Patrol has announced that they will be conducting roadblocks this weekend to check for sobriety. Drivers can expect to see troopers set up Friday night along Highway 56 in Putnam County, and also on South Jefferson Avenue in Cookeville. THP Lt. Brian Lawson says the highway patrol has found the sobriety checkpoint roadblocks to be an effective means of enforcing the DUI laws of Tennessee, and he reminds local drivers that DUI means under the influence of alcohol OR drugs.
