It was a successful saturation patrol for the weekend of St. Patrick’s Day, according to McMinnville Police Department Lt. Mark Mara. The department had seven officers working the saturation patrol and they conducted 28 traffic stops, which does not include the officers and stops made by Warren County Sheriff’s Department and the Tennessee Highway Patrol. Mara says his department did something unique during this saturation patrol by focusing on motorists who do not move over.“In trying to make people understand there is a Move Over Law, we were working on that as well as the regular traffic stops looking for intoxicated drivers,” said Mara.
