Franklin police plan sobriety checkpoint for Friday

Posted:
FRANKLIN, Tenn. -

Franklin police will conduct a sobriety checkpoint on Friday.

Last year the Governor's Highway Safety Office awarded the Department with a $50,000 grant to use for anti-DUI initiatives including DUI checkpoints, saturation patrols, training, and equipment.

According to the Governor's Highway Safety Office, impaired driving and impaired-related crashes constitute one of the nation's leading health problems.

These events result in more deaths each year than do total homicides, and alcohol is a factor in 33% of all crashes in the United States.

The checkpoint will be at McEwen drive near Carothers Parkway.
