“Drive Sober” Maximum enforcement From THP This New Year’s Eve
ROBERTSON COUNTY, MIDDLE TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) –If you plan to drink this New Year’s Eve then call a friend, or tell a SOBER driver to take you home. Do not place anyone in danger by trying to drive after you have been drinking. Plan ahead for a SOBER designated driver. We will be out looking for drunk drivers. Dial *847, that is *THP if you see a drunk driver.
The Tennessee Highway Patrol (THP) will conduct an aggressive traffic safety enforcement campaign this New Year’s Eve Holiday. State troopers will perform saturation patrols, bar/tavern checks as well as seat belt, sobriety and driver license checkpoints during the holiday. All of Tennessee’s 95 counties will have troopers working to ensure a safe holiday as we conclude 2018.
These actions allow law enforcement officials to seek out those who are suspected to be impaired drivers. This campaign is aimed at deterring impaired driving and reducing fatal crashes on Tennessee roadways.
“The goal of the THP is to keep everyone who is traveling on Tennessee roadways safe,” said Colonel Dereck R. Stewart. “We will not tolerate impaired drivers. State troopers will aggressively enforce the drinking and driving law.”
The THP will be working diligently to ensure our roads are safe. We hope you will enjoy time with your family and friends as you ring in the New Year. Please choose a sober driver to get home safely.
