Friday night, the Franklin Police Department will conduct two sobriety checkpoints to help stop impaired drivers. The checkpoint locations on McEwen Drive, and on Murfreesboro Road, are one of many traffic safety measures used to help prevent DUI crashes. We ask Franklin drivers to exercise caution and never drive while impaired. No life is worth losing to drinking and driving.
Through grant funding awarded by the Tennessee Highway Safety Office, the FPD is provided with support and resources that help to combat impaired driving, including sobriety checkpoints, saturation patrols, training, equipment, and overtime pay for Franklin Police Officers conducting those checkpoints and patrols.
