Print | Front Page | Email this story

NASHVILLE (AP) — Law enforcement officials across the state are stepping up a campaign to increase highway safety.

Richard Holt is the Governor's Highway Safety Office Law Enforcement administrator.

He says law enforcement statewide will be out in force from July 18 to July 21 and from July 25 to July 28 for the final phase of the More Cops-More Stops campaign to crack down on drivers who are speeding, drunk, distracted or not wearing a seat belt.

In 2011, officials say more than 700 people died in Tennessee traffic crashes.

Twenty-seven percent of the fatalities involved a drunk driver, and 23 percent were speeding-related crashes. Fifty-seven percent of those who died were not wearing their seat belts at the time of the crash.
