The Tennessee Highway Patrol worked hard Labor Day weekend to keep our roads safe

 

thpcar2This weekend while most of us were enjoying our first evening of the long Labor Day weekend, the Troopers of Tennessee Highway Patrol were hard at work. In District 3 which covers our area, they were out on Highway 12 conducting a drivers license checkpoint. Being a bit short on officers, just three State Troopers processed over 137 cars looking for people driving without licenses, driving intoxicated, miscellaneous violations, and of course people with outstanding warrants.
