The Anderson County Sheriff’s Department will take part in the Click It or Ticket-National Seat Belt Enforcement Mobilization by conducting saturation patrols during this Memorial Day holiday period, a press release said.
A sobriety checkpoint will also be held the evening of Friday, May 23, on Tri-County Boulevard in Oliver Springs. This will be a multi-agency effort sponsored by the Oliver Springs Police Department and the Governor’s Highway Safety Office.
The Click It or Ticket-National Seat Belt Enforcement Mobilization runs from May 19 through June 1, the press release said.
Seat belts are the most effective safety feature ever invented and have helped save thousands of lives, the release said.
“Sadly, one in five Americans fail to regularly wear a seat belt when driving or riding in a motor vehicle,” it said. “Remember, buckle up—each time…every time.”
This effort is supported by a grant from the Governor’s Highway Safety Office in the Tennessee Department of Transportation.
