Buckle up to avoid officers' seatbelt blitz

It will be a case of Click-it or Ticket this Monday and Tuesday as officers saturate Warren County roads looking for people who aren’t wearing their seatbelts.
“The recent Tennessee Safety Belt Summary revealed seatbelt usage has dropped in Warren County,” said Highway Patrol Sgt. Billy Prater. “For this reason it has been decided to hold a seatbelt blitz here involving the highway patrol, city police and sheriff’s department. All available officers will be on the road actively looking for people not wearing their seatbelts.”
The blitz will be for a full 48 hours, both night and day, and will involve a saturated patrol. There will be no roadblocks.
“We will specifically be looking for people who are not wearing their seatbelts and motorists who do not have their children properly restrained in a child safety seat,” Prater noted, pointing out the blitz will be countywide. “The best advice I can give is to make sure you’re wearing your seatbelt, both to avoid being pulled over and for your own safety. Seatbelts save lives.”
