More Cops More Stops

Sheriff Steve Graves

Tennessee drivers beware. The Coffee County Sheriff’s Department is teaming with law enforcement agencies all across the state to crack down on traffic safety violations. State and local law enforcement will be out in force to remind all drivers and passengers to never drink and drive, always buckle up, obey the speed limit, and eliminate all distractions in the vehicle while driving. This special enforcement crackdown is part of the state’s new More Cops. Sheriff Steve Graves says they want everyone to be safe while traveling on Tennessee’s roadways. So the department is teaming with other state and local law enforcement officials on this special ‘More Cops, More Stops.’ Sixty-nine percent of 18 to 34 year old passenger vehicle occupants killed in Tennessee crashes during 2009 were NOT wearing their seat belts at the time of the crash.
