Labor Day Story Header

The Williamson County Sheriff’s Office will be conducting sobriety roadside safety checkpoints in the evening hours over the Labor Day weekend.

The checkpoint times and locations are:

  • Thursday, Sept. 1, from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Goose Creek Bypass
  • Saturday, Sept. 3, 2016 11 p.m. to 1 a.m. at Highway 100
  • Sunday, Sept. 4, 2016 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Wilson Pike

The WCSO wants drivers to have a safe and happy Labor Day weekend, so it is urging everyone to drive responsibly and if you are out celebrating with alcohol, use a designated driver.

Sheriffs also encourage patience when you drive because there will be more traffic during the holiday period and people will be in a rush to get to their destinations. And, whether driving or riding, always use your seatbelt even if traveling a short distance.

Extra WCSO deputies will also be out on patrol during the holiday weekend working to get impaired drivers off the roads.

These efforts to stop impaired and irresponsible driving are paid for with grant money from the Governor’s Highway Safety Office.

  1. Nothing like giving up your God given, constitutionally enumerated rights for the illusion of safety. A little revenue generation through quotas/performance standards never hurt anyone either.
