One of the most dangerous times of the year on our nation’s roadways is the last hurrah of summer. As people try to get their last bit of fun in the sun in, police departments across the nation are ramping up their DUI detection units. The Sevierville Police Department (SPD) 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. Be sure to check back for further updates on DUI checkpoints and task force initiatives in Tennessee. I will be keeping my ears open for any additional information, particularly with regards to the greater Chattanooga area. As always, be safe when on the roads. If you even question the fact of whether you are impaired or not, call an Uber or taxi.
