The Middle Tennessee State University police department will conduct sobriety roadside-safety checkpoints during the early morning hours of Saturday, Oct. 12, on Alumni Drive at Homecoming Circle on campus.
Campus officers will evaluate drivers for signs of alcohol or drug impairment at the checkpoints. Officers will target those who operate a vehicle while impaired, and they’ll also take action on any other violations observed while ensuring the protection of all motorists.
The MTSU Police Department recognizes that sobriety checkpoints are highly visible and effective tools in the battle against impaired driving. Department officials also note that impaired driving is a serious crime that kills more than 16,000 people and injures 305,000 others every year in the United States.
