Cookeville THP is partnering with other Upper Cumberland Law Enforcement Agencies to enhance impaired-driving enforcement during Super Bowl Weekend. The highway patrol will be conducting line saturation patrols aimed at combating impaired drivers on our roadways.
“We will be utilizing departmental data and applying that to troop deployment during this time,” said Captain R.C.Christian.
During Super Bowl Sunday weekend last year, there were 76 crashes and 8 fatalities relating to impaired driving across our state. In the Cookeville District, there were no fatalities in 2016. We fully intend to maintain that number at zero again.
Troopers will be out in force in all 15 counties combating excessive speeding, restraint usage, and impaired drivers. Another key area of enforcement is distracted driving. There has been a 21% increase in distracted driving crashes in the Cookeville District. Our utmost priority is the safety of our motorist. All of these factors contribute to crashes. If we prevent one crash, one fatality; we have accomplished our goals.
