Lewisburg Police Department Says Thumbs Down to Texting & Driving The Lewisburg Police will be partnering with the Tennessee Highway Safety Office (THSO) to promote the fourth annual Thumbs Down to Texting and Driving campaign during the month of April. April is nationally recognized as Distracted Driving Awareness Month. Agencies participate in the campaign by promoting safe driving habits and increasing awareness about the dangers of distracted driving. Throughout April, the THSO will use #ThumbsDownTN to promote the campaign via social media. “We need your support and cooperation to saves lives,” said Chief David Henley. In 2017, there were 24,781 traffic crashes statewide where distracted driving was a contributing factor, according to the Tennessee Integrated Traffic Analysis Network (TITAN). Of those crashes, 120 were fatal. “Texting and driving is a serious issue,” said THSO Director Vic Donoho. “The slightest distraction could lead to a fatal crash. We caution all drivers to remain focused and alert at all times. The THSO and law enforcement partners are cracking down on distracted driving in our shared mission to Drive to Zero Fatalities across Tennessee.” For more information, or to learn more about texting and driving, visit www.tntrafficsafety.org/distracteddriving.

Please pay extra attention to your speed and surroundings when operating your vehicle in our construction zones. Texting, eating, or any other distraction could easily result in the death of one of the workers who are defenseless when working on the side of the roadway. There has already been equipment damaged as a result of vehicle accidents because of distracted drivers. Luckily, no one has been injured.

Please remember pets this winter. They are defenseless and need your care. Please call Animal Welfare if you see an animal in need (931) 359-7215. http://www.lewisburgtn.gov/departments/police/animal-welfare https://www.aspca.org/pet-care/general-pet-care/cold-weather-safety-tips
As temperatures drop this winter, the American Red Cross offers ten steps people can take to stay safe during the cold weather. 1. Layer up! Wear layers of lightweight clothing to stay warm. Gloves and a hat will help prevent losing your body heat. 2. Don’t forget your furry friends. Bring pets indoors. If they can’t come inside, make sure they have enough shelter to keep them warm and that they can get to unfrozen water. 3. Remember the three feet rule. If you are using a space heater, place it on a level, hard surface and keep anything flammable at least three feet away – things such as paper, clothing, bedding, curtains or rugs. 4. Requires supervision – Turn off space heaters and make sure fireplace embers are out before leaving the room or going to bed. 5. Don’t catch fire! If you are using a fireplace, use a glass or metal fire screen large enough to catch sparks and rolling logs. 6. Protect your pipes. Run water, even at a trickle, to help prevent your pipes from freezing. Open the kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors to allow warmer air to circulate around the plumbing. Be sure to move any harmful cleaners and household chemicals out of the reach of children. Keep the garage doors closed if there are water lines in the garage. 7. Better safe than sorry. Keep the thermostat at the same temperature day and night. Your heating bill may be a little higher, but you could avoid a more costly repair job if your pipes freeze and burst. 8. The kitchen is for cooking. Never use a stove or oven to heat your home. 9. Use generators outside. Never operate a generator inside the home, including in the basement or garage. 10. Knowledge is power. Don’t hook a generator up to the home’s wiring. The safest thing to do is to connect the equipment you want to power directly to the outlets on the generator.
