The Anderson County Sheriff’s Department will be out in full force, cracking down on drunk driving on July 4 and, aggressively targeting those who put lives in danger, a press release said.
“The Fourth of July is a favorite holiday for many Americans,” the release said. “Families and friends gather to celebrate our country with food, parades, parties, and fireworks. For many people, the celebration includes alcohol, but the holiday quickly goes from festive to fatal when people choose to drive after drinking.”
Anderson County Sheriff Paul White said the department wants to make the roads safer on the holiday.
“For everyone’s sake, don’t drink and drive, or you will be arrested,” White said. “The ‘Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over’ campaign means zero tolerance for drunk driving—no excuses.”
This effort is supported by a grant from the Governor’s Highway Safety Office, Tennessee Department of Transportation.
