TN Dept. Of Safety & Homeland Security Saturday February 3, 2018

This weekend, the Tennessee Highway Safety Office (THSO) and the Tennessee Highway Patrol (THP) are huddling up to urge Super Bowl fans not to drop the ball on finding a sober ride home. According to the Tennessee's Integrated Traffic Analysis Network, there were 71 crashes and four fatalities statewide related to alcohol-impaired driving during Super Bowl weekend last year. In 2016, there were 67 crashes and two fatalities. THP Colonel Tracy Trott said, "Drunk driving is not a game. If you fumble and get behind the wheel, you risk losing your life or the life of another. Be a team player. Always find a sober ride home."

 


20 Fire Fatalities Make January 2018 Tennessee's Third-Deadliest Month Since 2010
tn.gov/Peg Broadcasting News Saturday February 3, 2018

The latest tally of January fire fatalities has the Tennessee State Fire Marshal's Office (SFMO) urgently renewing its call that residents turn their focus to fire prevention during the high-risk winter months. Current SFMO data indicates that 15 fatal fires caused 20 fatalities in Tennessee during January 2018, making it the third-deadliest month for fire deaths since 2010. December 2016 had 24 fire related deaths; January 2010 had 21 deaths. Historically, January leads all other months in residential fires, heating fires and fatal fires in Tennessee. In Tennessee, nearly half (46.8 percent) of all fatal fires occur between November and February. When the temperature drops below 32 degrees Tennesseans are 40 percent more likely to have a home fire than if it were above 32 degrees. For temperatures below 15 degrees, Tennesseans are twice as likely to have a fire. The SFMO has posted some basic fire safety guidelines at tn.gov/fire and encourages all Tennesseans to take a few minutes to review them in the hopes of preventing another fire tragedy this winter.

 


Deceptive Websites Scam Customers to Pay Misleading Renewal Fees
tn.gov/Peg Broadcasting News Saturday February 3, 2018

The Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security (TDOSHS) warns Tennesseans to exercise caution when searching online for driver services information. Tennesseans should be aware that deceptive, yet legal websites publish misleading information containing unofficial guidance on how to renew a driver license in order to scam customers into paying renewal fees. These deceptive websites are not associated with the state and do not have authority to request money and/or personal information from customers. The Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security's Driver Services Division is the only agency with authority to process driver license renewals in Tennessee. The only way to renew a Tennessee driver license online is to visit the website, https://www.tn.gov/safety/driver-services/online.html. The driver must know their Tennessee driver license number, the last four digits of their social security number, and the last name as it appears on the driver license. Other ways to renew a license are through self-service kiosks located in driver services centers and alternate sites across the state or by visiting one of the county clerk partnership locations. The kiosk and county clerk locations can also be found on our website, www.tn.gov/safety.

 


Green Dot Scam Attempted On Taco Bell Employee
Peg Broadcasting News/Crossville P.D. Friday February 2, 2018

A Taco Bell employee outsmarted two men who tried to cheat her in a Green Dot card scam. On Friday, the victim told Crossville Police that she had received a call from a man claiming to be Brantly Jacobs from the corporate office. Jacobs told the victim that her restaurant was under investigation due to counterfeit bills being passed. The man instructed the employee to put $1,407.38 on a Green Dot card and give him the number. He also told the victim not to tell any other managers about the transaction. The victim was skeptical about the phone call and in an attempt to get his phone number, she asked him to call back on her cell phone. When he did, his number came back restricted. Another man claiming to be a Federal Marshall named Michael Watts got on the phone and talked about the so-called investigation. The victim wisely did not go through with the transaction and did notify management and the police. As the authorities point out, there have been no reports of counterfeit $0.38 cent pieces! The Crossville Police Department is warning everyone to not fall for phone scams. If you get a call from someone you do not know asking for money for personal information, just hang up.
