Tennessee Highway Patrol regulations generally require that every driver passing through a checkpoint location be stopped and questioned. In addition to checking for valid driver’s license, troopers will be investigating for signs of drug and alcohol impairment. If they suspect that you are under the influence, you may be asked to exit your vehicle and perform certain roadside tasks, often referred to as field sobriety tests.

Drive carefully and be on the outlook for these checkpoints or roadblocks.  Be aware there will likely be additional members of law enforcement on patrol throughout the area looking for impaired drivers.

Anyone detained and then arrested at a driver’s license, seat belt checkpoint or DUI roadblock should immediately contact a Tennessee criminal defense attorney.
