The Dickson County Sheriff’s Office is partnering with the Tennessee Highway Safety Office (THSO) for its annual Seatbelts Are For Everyone (SAFE) campaign. This statewide initiative is designed to increase seatbelt usage and child passenger safety restraint usage through the implementation of occupant-protection programs, public events, and checkpoints throughout local communities across Tennessee.The SAFE campaign begins February 1, 2017, and concludes on August 1, 2017.
“As guardians of our county, it is our responsibility to know the facts and use the information at hand to improve the safety of our roadways. We know seatbelts and child restraints prevent injuries and save lives. Many people still violate the law and ignore this information, knowing it may have deadly consequences. When family and friends care and depend on you, why be selfish and risk ending your life? Join your Dickson County Sheriff’s Office and help us make our roadways the safest in the state for 2017,” said Sheriff Jeff Bledsoe.
