Seat belt checkpoint planned for April 18
Placeholder Image
The Tennessee Highway Patrol will be conducting a seat belt checkpoint in Warren County on April 18 on US70S. 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. Troopers will also be on active patrol observing for unrestrained drivers and occupants of motor vehicles. The Tennessee Highway Patrol has found seat belt checkpoints to be an effective means of enforcing seat belt and child restraint laws of Tennessee while ensuring the protection of all motorists.
