The Murfreesboro Police Department will be increasing traffic enforcement efforts from August 16 through September 2, 2013 as part of the national crackdown to reduce alcohol related fatalities.  Officers will be enforcing all traffic laws but will focus on DUI, speeding, and seatbelt violations.   

Last year, two of Murfreesboro’s nine fatal crashes were alcohol related.  The Murfreesboro Police Alcohol Countermeasures Team (MPACT) and other uniformed officers initiated 824 Driving Under the Influence (DUI) related arrests.  

The Tennessee Highway Patrol is also on the prowl for drunk drivers and those who are driving without a license this Friday.

Chief of Police Glenn Chrisman stated: “By joining this national effort we will make Murfreesboro roadways safer for everyone throughout the Labor Day period.  We want to remind everyone that getting behind the wheel while impaired is a terrible idea.  If you have doubt about your sobriety, do not get behind the wheel.  If you choose to drive impaired, you will be arrested.  No warnings, no excuses.”
