The roadblocks come in compliance with a Tennessee Supreme Court ruling that requires all law enforcement to notify the public of when and where a roadblock will be held. The courts require proof roadblocks are conducted in the best interest of overall public safety, and the Tennessee Highway Patrol’s checkpoint times and locations are strategically selected through crash and crime data collection to maximize their overall effectiveness and efficiency.
