FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: November 2, 2018 CONTACT: Major. Tom Scrivner (870) 563-5213 If You Are Unbuckled This Thanksgiving, Expect to Pay a Fine No Warnings. No Excuses. Click It or Ticket. Osceola, AR – Every year, the Thanksgiving holiday is one of the busiest travel times. Millions of Americans hit the roads to spend time with family and friends. Unfortunately, more vehicles on the road means, the potential for more dangerous roads. It’s as important as ever that everyone is buckled up. To make sure the message reaches all Osceola drivers and passengers, November 19th -25th, Osceola Police Department will be joining other state and local law enforcement agencies to participate in the United States Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) high-visibility seat belt enforcement campaign Click It or Ticket. The no-excuses, zero-tolerance crackdown combines powerful messages about seat belt safety, with increased patrols day and night, targeting all unbuckled motorists. “We want people to know that we’re serious about this campaign, because we see the devastation first-hand when people fail to buckle up in a crash,” said Major Tom Scrivner. “If we see you without your seat belt, we aren’t going to be asking any questions or giving out warnings. You WILL get fined. It only takes a second to buckle up, and isn’t that easier than getting pulled over and ticketed? With the help of highway safety advocates and local law enforcement officers across the country, we can increase seat belt use and save lives on our roadways this Thanksgiving. Remember: Click It or Ticket. You have a lot to lose otherwise. For more information about traveling safely during Thanksgiving, please visit www.nhtsa.gov.

Osceola Police Department To Participate in Speed Enforcement Campaign “Obey the Sign or Pay the Fine” Motorists enjoying summer road trips are advised to maintain the speed limit as they travel this upcoming week between July 16th -22nd, officers will be on the lookout for those who are traveling above the speed limit on all roadways. Speeding translates to death on our roadways. It greatly reduces a driver’s ability to steer safely around another vehicle, a hazardous object, or an unexpected curve. Speeding drivers put themselves, their passengers and other drivers at tremendous risk. All drivers need to be alert the posted speed limit is the law. “Our goal is to save lives and we’re putting all drivers on alert - the posted speed limit IS THE LAW. No more warnings and no more excuses. When it comes to speeding: Obey the Sign or Pay the Fine,” said Major. Tom Scrivner. For more information please visit http://trafficsafetymarketing.gov/.

To crack down on drunk driving this Fourth of July, our law enforcement will be out in full force, aggressively targeting those who put lives in danger, starting June 29th through July 8th, 2018. “Osceola Police Department will be ramping up our enforcement to make our roads safer this Fourth of July,” said Major Tom Scrivner. “For everyone’s sake do not drink and drive or you will be arrested. The ‘Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over’ campaign means zero tolerance for drunk driving—no excuses.”

Never leave anything out in plain sight inside your car. Yes, even if the doors are locked! Thieves can break through the windows to take your belongings if they feel motivated enough. So, don't give anyone any reason for them to target your car. Even if it's something as simple as a blanket - by leaving this out in the open, thieves may think that the blanket exists in there to hide something valuable beneath it. By keeping your car completely clear of your possessions, it will not only save you the trouble of recovering your valuables and the inconvenience of having to fix broken car windows. #shareifyoucare

OSCEOLA POLICE DEPARTMENT IS CRACKING DOWN ON DRUNK DRIVERS Participating in National Mobilization “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” This holiday season, Osceola police will be out in force cracking down on drunk drivers with aggressive Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over enforcement, starting Dec. 13th through Jan. 1, 2018, law enforcement will be watching for drunk drivers to help keep roads safe. Please follow these tips to keep the holidays safe and happy: • Even one drink can impair your judgment and increase the risk of getting arrested for driving drunk—or worse, the risk of having a crash while driving. • If you will be drinking, do not plan on driving. Plan ahead; designate a sober driver before the party begins. • If you have been drinking, do not drive. Phone a sober friend or family member • Be responsible. If someone you know is drinking, do not let that person get behind the wheel. • If you see an impaired driver on the road, contact law enforcement. Your actions may save someone’s life, and inaction could cost a life. Remember, it is never safe to drink and drive: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.

The Osceola Police Department has received information that interstate 55 at the 57-58 mile marker is now open. Monday it will go down to one lane. Tuesday it will be closed again for further repair. Drive careful.
