The Tennessee Highway Patrol will conduct a high-visibility enforcement campaign during this year's Fourth of July holiday period, beginning at 12:01 a.m. on Thursday, July 3 and ending at midnight on Sunday, July 6.

State troopers will utilize a variety of traffic safety tools, such as driver's license, sobriety and seat belt checkpoints, saturation patrols, and "No Refusal" enforcement, in an effort to reduce serious injury and fatal crashes on Tennessee roadways.

"We urge all Tennesseans and visitors traveling through our state to wear their seat belts," Colonel Tracy Trott said. "State troopers will aggressively seek out violators of the seat belt law and those driving recklessly or distracted. It's our goal to get everyone to their destination safely," he added.
