THE MILLERSVILLE POLICE DEPARTMENT Says Thumbs Down to Texting & Driving The Millersville Police Department 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. “Driver’s should be focused on the task of driving and remain alert at all times. The time you take to read or send a message could cost you everything ,” said Corporal Josh Barnes. 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.

THE MILLERSVILLE POLICE DEPARTMENT ANNOUNCES SAFE CAMPAIGN PARTICIPATION The Millersville Police Department is partnering with the Tennessee Highway Safety Office (THSO) for its fifth annual Seatbelts Are For Everyone (SAFE) campaign. This statewide initiative is designed to increase seatbelt usage and child passenger safety restraint usage through the implementation of occupant-protection programs, public events, and checkpoints throughout local communities across Tennessee. The SAFE campaign begins February 1, 2018, and concludes August 1, 2018. “We would like to remind everyone that seatbelt’s do save lives. Don’t just buckle up because it’s the law, buckle up because your loved ones count on you to come home safely,” said Corporal Josh Barnes. 2018 will be the fifth year that the THSO has sponsored the SAFE campaign. Last year yielded the following results: • 1,480 child restraint violations • 16,571 seat belt citations • 835 other seat belt enforcement activities “In 2016, Tennessee’s average seatbelt usage rate was 88.95 percent,” said THSO Director Vic Donoho. “Last year, the state’s usage rate decreased to 88.51 percent. Our goal this year is to achieve 100 percent seatbelt usage across Tennessee through the SAFE campaign and other occupant-protection initiatives.” In Tennessee, a disproportionate percentage of unrestrained fatalities tend to occur 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. Therefore, participating agencies will focus special attention toward nighttime seatbelt enforcement during the SAFE campaign this year.

The THSO’s statewide Booze It and Lose It campaign is part of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over nationwide mobilization. We will Increase patrol efforts to watch for impaired and unsafe drivers on I-65, Hwy 31W and Hwy 257. “Too often the joy of the holidays are shattered with tragedy of vehicle accidents and fatalities, please remember to drive safely and always buckle up,” said Corporal Josh Barnes. Increased state and national messaging about the dangers of drunk driving, coupled with increased sobriety checkpoints and high visibility enforcement, aim to drastically reduce the number of drunk-driving crashes, injuries, and fatalities this year. “We ask all Tennesseans to please drive safely this holiday season,” said THSO Director Vic Donoho. “In December 2016, more than 500 traffic crashes statewide involved a drunk driver. Our state and local law enforcement partners will be out in full force to secure Tennessee roadways. We want everyone to make it home safely, so please designate a sober driver.” The consequences of a single DUI conviction for a first-time offender in the state of Tennessee may include costly fines, court costs, legal fees, jail time, mandatory drug and alcohol treatment, and/or the installation of an ignition interlock device in his/her vehicle. The THSO provides grant funding to support The Millersville Police Department’s increased enforcement efforts during the Booze It and Lose It holiday campaign.

Keep Your Vehicle Protected from Theft with These 7 Tips Having your vehicle or items within it stolen can be a great disruption to your life that would result in you having to file insurance claims, replace broken windows, file police reports, and possibly even having to replace the vehicle and the contents in it. Here are some tips that will help prevent your vehicle from being targeted for theft. These methods are not fail proof, but your vehicle is one of your most expensive properties, so it’s better safe than sorry. 1. Use common sense Mostly the vehicles that get stolen are the ones that have keys left in the ignition, don’t have their doors locked, or windows fully closed. If you want to keep your vehicle protected from theft, then these are a few common sense mistakes you must avoid. 2. Keep your valuables hidden Keeping valuables in plain view in your vehicle drastically increases the chances of it being stolen and even if the criminal doesn’t steal your entire vehicle, you could lose a lot. When a criminal sees valuables such as wallets, phones, sports equipment, etc. in a car, their desirability of theft increases and he/she is likely to smash your car’s windows to gain access and steal it. That’s why it is recommended that you keep all your valuables hidden when you park your vehicle. 3. Park in a well-lit area It has been proven that vehicles parked in well-lit areas have a lower probability of being stolen. And even if the vehicle gets stolen from such area, there could be people around that would become valuable witnesses and help you when filing a police report. 4. Never hide a second set of car keys in the vehicle This is also a common mistake many car owners make. When a thief enters your vehicle they generally do a detailed search for valuables and if you have hidden a second set of car keys in your vehicle, it will eventually be found which will make the job of the thief easier. 5. Replace T-shaped door locks with straight locks The T-shaped locks will help car thieves steal your vehicle quickly as they are vulnerable to a variety of tools they use. That’s why it is recommended that you replace them with straight locks to decrease the chances of your vehicle being stolen. 6. Install a 2-way car alarm system A 2-way car alarm system is very useful when it comes to preventing a car theft because it will alert your phone or wireless remote if someone breaks into your car. That will give you a chance to instantly call the police. Furthermore, you can also prevent car theft by installing a starter disabler. 7. Use emergency brake when you park Not all car thieves steal cars by driving; some do it by actually towing them away. You can prevent this if you use the emergency brake and turn your wheels to the side when you park. This will make it extremely difficult for thieves to tow your vehicle.
