THP to conduct checkpoints
thp badge w sm
The Tennessee Highway Patrol will be conducting a seatbelt checkpoint on Oct 19 on State Route 56 north in DeKalb County. Recognizing that an alarmingly high number of vehicle occupants killed in fatal crashes were unrestrained, the Tennessee Highway Patrol has elected to create an enforcement campaign aimed at drastically reducing the number of unrestrained drivers and occupants. Officers will also be on active patrol observing for unrestrained drivers and occupants of motor vehicles.
