Williamson County Sheriff's Office

The Williamson County Sheriff’s Office will conduct sobriety roadside safety checkpoints in the evening hours around the July Fourth holiday.

The Williamson County Sheriff’s Office will work to make the roads safe for those who are traveling in the county during the Labor Day weekend.  

Extra deputies will be on patrol looking for impaired drivers and others who are violating traffic laws. The saturation will continue throughout the holiday weekend. 

The WCSO has also scheduled sobriety roadside checkpoints: 

Friday, Aug. 23: 7-9 p.m., Highway 431 at Interstate 840 

Friday, Aug. 30: 9-11 p.m., Highway 96 East at North Chapel 

Tuesday, Sept. 3: 8-10 p.m., Highway 96 East at I-840

Tuesday, Sept. 17: 7-9 p.m., Goose Creek Bypass west of Lewisburg Pike

Saturday, Sept. 21: 11 p.m.-1 a.m., Carothers Parkway north of Cool Springs      

The WCSO wants residents to have a safe and happy Labor Day holiday weekend, so everyone is urged to drive responsibly. For those out celebrating with alcohol, use a designated driver and use patience when driving because there will be more traffic during the holiday period and people will be in a rush to get to their destinations. Also always use a seatbelt, even if you are traveling a short distance.

These traffic enforcement efforts are paid for with grant money from the Tennessee Highway Safety Office.
