MNPD reminders re: fireworks, checkpoints for July 4th

Metro Nashville Police Department officers will be maintaining a sobriety checkpoint at the intersection of Natchez Trace and West End Avenue on July 4th.

MNPD also issued a notice that fireworks are illegal in Davidson County:
The police department reminds Nashvillians that it is illegal to sell at retail, possess and/or use fireworks in Davidson County. A private act passed by the state legislature in 1947 makes fireworks offenses within Davidson County a misdemeanor, and also allows officers to confiscate fireworks. Large-scale fireworks displays held for public entertainment are exempt from the law and require a permit from the Metropolitan Fire Marshal. Officers will take use of fireworks complaints in neighborhoods and congested areas very seriously, especially during the late evening and early morning hours.
Please plan ahead to ensure that you and your family have a safe and enjoyable holiday.
