SPRINGFIELD TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News)-This is a re-post of a story we did a few years ago regarding why fireworks are not allowed inside Springfield city limits. If you have ever wondered what led Springfield leaders to ban fireworks, the video above should cast a little light on the decision.
This video footage (used on a popular TV series) was extracted from Springfield police dash-cams and as you can see, the streets of Springfield became a bit of a war zone.
Smokey spoke to a Springfield Police Officer that was working that night. The officer, that wished not to be named, told Smokey Barn News that people were shooting fireworks all over Springfield. Citizens were shooting at people, cars and as you can see in the video below, the police. “It was one crazy night,” the officer said.
Springfield Police cruisers are equipped with cameras that point in every direction. If you are caught using fireworks inside the city limits your fireworks will be confiscated and you will receive a citation.
If you are looking for a safe family friendly venue to watch a beautiful fireworks display, you’re in luck. Cities all across Robertson County are putting on some spectacular professional shows during the next week. See link below..
