Area Law Enforcement Agencies Encourage Holiday Driving Safety

Posted on Wednesday, December 16, 2015 at 11:59 am

This year may turn out to be a record setting year for Grundy County. So far, there have been no vehicle related fatalities in the county and Grundy County Sheriff Clint Shrum hopes to keep it that way.

“Grundy County has the opportunity to have a record-setting year,” stated Shrum. “I cannot find, in the history of our county’s traffic safety, a year when we had no fatalities.”DUI taxi

To reach this goal, the Grundy County Sheriff’s Department, the Tracy City Police Department, and the Monteagle Police Department are partnering with the Tennessee Highway Patrol and the Governor’s Safety Office in encouraging local residents to avoid the dangers of drinking and driving during the holiday season.

On Tuesday, the THP Taxi visited the Grundy County Jail in an effort to further educate everyone on the importance of designating a sober driver or choosing an alternative method of transportation before they make the mistake of getting behind the wheel after drinking.

The new THP Taxi campaign includes Grundy County and the 12 counties in the Chattanooga District, says Lt. John Harmon of the THP. “We are here today to encourage those that chose to drink to designate a sober driver, chose and alternative ride, or call a taxi,” Harmon said on Tuesday. “Our focus is for everyone to have a crash-free and injury-free holiday season.

“We are asking the community to help us accomplish our record-setting year in reducing fatal crashes. Grundy County has not had one fatal crash so far this year, as opposed to four fatal crashes last year. There are 16 days to go to have a record-setting year in Grundy County.”

Harmon says the three most important safety precautions drivers can take this holiday season, and throughout the year, are always wearing a seat belt, never driving after consuming alcohol, and never driving distracted.

“We are happy to be here at the Grundy County Jail for this event because the theme for the event is ‘You Choose Your Ride.’ You can choose to drive after drinking and get a ride straight to the Grundy County Jail in a police car, or you can choose a sober driver or alternative ride and get home safely. We want you to choose that alternative ride,” says Harmon.
