The Tennessee Highway Safety Office is Partnering with the Crossville Police Department to Increase Drunk Driving Enforcement Labor Day Weekend
Submitted: Lt. Brian Eckelson,Crimestoppers Coordinator/Public Information Officer Tuesday August 29, 2017

Crossville, TN - The end of summer is traditionally marked by the Labor Day holiday, a time for our country to reflect on the hard work of our fellow Americans. The long weekend is typically celebrated through picnics, pool parties, and barbecues, as families and friends enjoy the last few days of summer before fall and winter approach. Sadly, the Labor Day holiday is also one of the deadliest, with drunk drivers endangering themselves and others on America's roadways. This year, the City of Crossville Police Department is partnering with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to stop drunk drivers and help save lives. The high-visibility national enforcement campaign, Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over, runs through September 4, 2017. During this period, local law enforcement will show zero tolerance for drunk driving. Increased state and national messages about the dangers of driving impaired, coupled with enforcement and increased officers on the road, aim to drastically reduce drunk driving on our nation's roadways.

The City of Crossville Police Department and NHTSA are reminding citizens of the many resources available to get them home safely. "Drunk driving is not acceptable behavior," said Lieutenant Brian Tilley. "It is essential to plan a sober ride home before you ever leave for the party. That's why, during the Labor Day holiday, we will make zero exceptions for drunk driving. There are just no excuses," he said.

The Crossville Police Department recommends safe alternatives to drinking and driving:

Remember that it is never okay to drink and drive. Even if you've had one alcoholic beverage, designate a sober driver or plan to use public transportation to get home safely.

If you see a drunk driver on the road, contact the police immediately.

Have a friend who is about to drink and drive? Take the keys away and make arrangements to get your friend home safely.

AP/Peg Broadcasting News Monday August 28, 2017

Pretty Boy Floyd is back with its owner in Crossville after the pet Capuchin monkey escaped and spent a week on the loose in Knoxville. The Knoxville News Sentinel reports the monkey was captured on Sunday after walking up to his owner's 14-year-old daughter in Knoxville. Bill King, an Army veteran from Crossville, said Floyd serves as a therapy animal to help him cope with post-traumatic stress disorder and other health problems. King's eyes reportedly filled with tears of joy at the return of his pet.
