Murfreesboro Police Cracking Down on those who fail to BUCKLE UP
MURFREESBORO - The Murfreesboro Police Department is joining over 150 Tennessee police departments and the Governor’s Highway Safety Office in an effort to make Murfreesboro roads safer through a campaign designed to increase seat belt usage. The Seat belts Are For Everyone (SAFE) Campaign is designed to increase seat belt and child safety seat usage.
Traffic and Patrol officers will be stepping-up enforcement activities during the 2014 SAFE Campaign in conjunction with Click-It or Ticket. Officers will focus on strictly enforcing seat belt and child restraint laws by issuing citations. The campaign runs now through August.
“Seat belts clearly save lives. Unfortunately, too many people still need a tough reminder, so our officers are going to be out in force day and night buckling down on those who are not buckled up. We are glad to partner with the Governor’s Highway Safety Office by participating in the SAFE Campaign to help make Murfreesboro’s roads safer,” said Chief of Police Glenn Chrisman.
