Crossville, TN – The Crossville Police Department is partnering with the Tennessee Highway Safety Office (THSO) to promote “Slow Down Tennessee.” During October 15 – 29, We will increase education and enforcement efforts to help reduce speeding-related crashes, injuries, and fatalities statewide. The public is encouraged to participate by using #SlowDownTN on social media to help spread awareness.
“Each year traffic crashes take a toll on our community and our families.” Said Police Chief Jessie Brooks. “Speed is usually a major factor in those crashes. We want people to slow down and possibly save a life.”
The Crossville Police Department will be out in force, trying to slow down drivers and prevent speed related crashes. The State of Tennessee requires motorists to always exercise due care and maintain a safe speed while driving. Speed limits may vary depending on the county and road conditions; therefore, drivers must always pay attention and adhere to posted speed limits to ensure the safety of all roadway users.
