MNPD sobriety checkpoint planned for West End Avenue this weekend (Dec. 5-7)

From the Metro Nashville Police Department:
Metro police officers, including those working extra duty through a grant from the Governor’s Highway Safety Office, will be conducting sobriety checkpoints on Friday and Saturday nights of this week between 11 p.m. and 3 a.m. in the areas of Murfreesboro Pike near Dell Parkway, West End Avenue, 28th Avenue North, Gallatin Pike near Alta Loma Road, and 8th Avenue South near Division Street.

Officers paid through a Governor’s Highway Safety Office grant charged 32 persons with DUI last weekend in the police department’s continuing DUI initiative using extra duty officers. These officers target impaired drivers Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. in areas with a propensity for fatal crashes, crime, and DUI arrests.

Additionally, the DUI Unit charged 22 persons last week for driving under the influence. Enhanced visibility on Nashville’s roadways and zero tolerance for impaired drivers are the cornerstones of the police department’s DUI initiative. So far this year, extra duty officers working under the grant have arrested 1,741 suspected drunk drivers, a 10 % increase over this time last year. The DUI Unit has arrested 1,707 suspected drunk drivers, an 18 % increase over this time last year.
