Sheriff's Office Announces Traffic Enforcement Campaign through Memorial Day Holiday



Sheriff's Office Announced Memorial Day Holiday Traffic Enforcement Campaign

With the upcoming Memorial Day Holiday Weekend approaching, the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office will be joining law enforcement partners across the region to make sure area roadways are safe.

"From now through June 2nd, the Sheriff's Office will be deploying additional deputies to patrol the highways and secondary roads. The deputies will specifically watch for motorists who choose to travel without their seatbelts fastened, those who choose to drive while distracted, at unsafe speeds and those who make the decision to get behind the wheel while under the influence," according to Chief Deputy Nate Jones in announcing the agencies participation in the enforcement campaign.

"We know there will be a lot of start of summer celebrations in the upcoming week. Trips to the lake or strip pits, backyard cookouts and many others. But we also know there are expected to be 44 million American's traveling away from their homes over the holiday weekend period, which also starts what has become known as the 100 deadliest days of summer due to a 15% increase in deadly crashes involving teen drivers between Memorial Day and Labor Day. We want everyone to have a great start to the summer, but we also want to make sure they are safe while doing so," concluded Chief Deputy Jones.
