Special Nighttime Enforcement Effort with Border States
NASHVILLE – In 2008, 13,250 people across the U.S. unbuckled their safety belt and walked away from what could have been a deadly crash. That’s more than 13,000 people who were able to hug their family, talk with friends and live to see another day thanks in part to their safety belt.
Tennessee’s Governor’s Highway Safety Office is joining hundreds of law enforcement officials, highway safety representatives and safety advocates nationwide to remind motorists that safety belts do save lives during the annual Click It or Ticket education and enforcement campaign. As part of the campaign, Tennessee’s law enforcement agencies are partnering with border states for special nighttime Hands Across the Border safety belt enforcement events to draw attention to the need to wear a safety belt at all times, day and night.
