The Huntland Police Department will be partnering with the Tennessee Governor's Highway Safety Office for the 2016 Seatbelts Are For Everyone (SAFE) campaign. The SAFE campaign is designed to increase seat belt and child passenger safety restraint usage in Tennessee. Law enforcement agencies participate in the campaign by planning and implementing occupant protection initiatives in their communities. This is the third year that the Governor's Highway Safety Office has sponsored this campaign. Last year yielded the following results: * 2,470 child restraint violations * 33,879 seat belt citations *671 other seat belt enforcement activities. " Last year, our statewide seat belt use rate dropped slightly to 86.2%," said Governor's Highway Safety Office Director Kendell Poole. " It is vitally important that all drivers and passengers buckle up every trip, every time. Our ultimate goal is that this campaign, combined with the increase of the seat belt fine, will increase our usage rate to ninety percent or higher." This year, participating agencies will pay special attention to nighttime seat belt enforcement. Tennessee has seen a disproportionate percentage of unrestrained fatalities between the hours of 6:00 p.m. and 5:59 a.m. Historically, approximately fifty percent of Tennessee's traffic fatalities are unbelted. That percentage increases to nearly sixty when nighttime crashes are examined. The SAFE campaign will take place February 1 - August 1, 2016. Agencies participating in the voluntary campaign become eligible to win one of two fully-equipped police vehicles at the Tennessee Law Enforcement Challenge ceremony in September.

HUNTLAND POLICE DEPARTMENT INCREASES DUI ENFORCEMENT DURING STATEWIDE BOOZE IT AND LOSE IT MOBILIZATION Huntland, TN – Huntland Police Dept. is partnering with the Tennessee Governor’s Highway Safety Office to step up DUI enforcement from August 19 to September 7, surrounding the Labor Day holiday. The statewide Booze It and Lose It campaign is part of a national mobilization to prevent drunk driving. Tennessee experienced 6,645 known alcohol-related crashes in 2014. That equates to an average of 18 people each day making the decision to get behind the wheel after they have been drinking. “Too many people think their actions don’t affect anybody else,” said Chief Ryan Albaugh. “They know it’s illegal. They know it’s wrong. But they do it anyway – they make decisions as if those statistics just can’t happen to them,” he added. Increased state and national messaging about the dangers of driving drunk, coupled with checkpoints and increased officers on the road, aim to drastically reduce the toll of drunk driving. “Anyone can tell you that it is unsafe to drink and drive. However, we still lose hundreds of Tennesseans each year due to this behavior,” said Governor’s Highway Safety Office Director Kendell Poole. “Our law enforcement partners will be out in full force looking for drivers under the influence of alcohol, and they will arrest you.” A single DUI conviction can cost an individual $5,000 or more in addition to jail time. Offenders could also be required to attend drug and alcohol treatment or to install an ignition interlock device in their vehicle.
