NO New Year Traffic Fatalities In Rutherford County

  Email   Print
Officers gathered last week at the Sheriffs Office and vowed to crack down on offenders over the New Year's holiday.

The crack down on motorists over the long New Year's weekend worked--no fatalities in Rutherford County. All local law enforcement agencies were on the lookout for speeders, persons driving under the influence and other infractions from 4:00 o'clock last Friday evening until midnight as January first ended.


A spokesperson at the Tennessee Highway Patrol told WGNS News that the entire Nashville region did well until the final hours of the four and a half-day holiday period where two persons were killed in Montgomery County.

As you recall, local Tennessee Highway Patrol troopers, deputies from the Rutherford County Sheriffs Office along with officers from the Murfreesboro, Smyrna and La Vergne Police Departments joined forces with "Crash No More On 24", an effort to step-up traffic enforcement and stop fatalities. This was motivated a few weeks ago when the Volunteer State exceeded the one-thousand mark with motorists killed in a single year.
