Labor Laws
AP Friday May 27, 2016

As students across Tennessee look for summer jobs, state Department of Labor and Workforce Development officials are reminding employers about child labor laws that ensure teens are safe.

State officials say students as young as 14 can work on a limited basis in Tennessee. When school is out, teens ages 14 and 15 can work as much as eight hours a day, 40 hours per week, but they aren't allowed to work after 9 p.m. Labor and Workforce Development officials say teens who are 16 and 17 can work up until midnight when school is out of session, but they must have written permission from a parent to work that late.

Minors are also barred from serving alcoholic beverages, selling items door-to-door and working jobs declared as hazardous.

Crossville P.D. And Cumb. Co. Sheriffs Dept. Partner With THSO for Click It Or Ticket


Crossville P.D. And Cumb. Co. Sheriffs Dept. Partner With THSO for Click It Or Ticket
Submitted: Capt. Larry Qualls/Sheriff Casey Cox Friday May 27, 2016

The Crossville Police Department and the Cumberland County Sheriffs Department are partnering with the Tennessee Highway Safety Office to increase seat belt enforcement from May 23 to June 5, surrounding one of the busiest travel weekends of the year.

Crossville Police Capt. Larry Qualls and Cumb. Co. Sheriff Casey Cox both say that seat belts save lives and there is no good excuse for not wearing a seat belt. They hope the enforcement crackdowns get peoples attention and get them to buckle up.

This year, Tennessee celebrates its 30year anniversary of seat belt legislation. The law was updated in 2004 to make seat belt violations a primary offense. In 2015, the law was again updated to more than double the fine for seat belt citations.

Tennessees current seat blet use rate is 86.2 percent. This classifies Tennessee as a low use state on a national level. According to the Department of Safety and Homeland Security, 343 individuals killed in traffic crashes last year were not wearing a seat belt. This group makes up over forty-eight percent of all those killed in passenger vehicles.

TDOT Halts Memorial Weekend Construction
Alan Spector Thursday May 26, 2016

Motorists wont be slowed down by road construction as they travel Tennessees highways this Memorial Day weekend. The Tennessee Department of Transportation will suspend all construction-related lane closures on interstates and state routes beginning at 12:00 noon Friday through 6:00 a.m. on Tuesday. This will provide maximum roadway capacity for the nearly 700,000 motorists expected to travel in the state this Memorial Day weekend.

More than one-third of motorists have driven multiple times in the past year after consuming alcohol. That's according to a survey by AAA, which is joining with Anheuser-Busch to provide the Tow to Go service in Tennessee for the upcoming Memorial Day weekend. Anyone, AAA member or not, can call for a ride anytime Friday through 6 a.m. on Tuesday. AAA will transport the driver and the vehicle home or somewhere safe within 10 miles. That number is 855-2-TOW-2-GO. Since its inception in 1998, Tow to Go has safely removed more than 24,000 impaired drivers from roads across the Southeast.
