Impaired driving is a serious crime that kills more than 16,000 people and injures 305,000 others every year in the United States. Sheriff’s deputies will evaluate drivers for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment. Additionally, they will target those who operate a vehicle while impaired and take corrective actions for other violations observed while ensuring the protection of all motorists.
Sheriff Eric Watson said, “The Bradley County Sheriff’s Office recognizes that sobriety checkpoints are highly visible and effective tools in the battle against impaired driving. These efforts to stop impaired and irresponsible driving are paid for with grant money from the Tennessee Highway Safety Office.”
