Memphis Police Officers Increase Presence on Interstate 240

According to the Memphis Commercial Appeal, the Memphis Police Department is cracking down on speeding and other forms of unsafe driving in Memphis, Tennessee. Since March 3, 2012, officers have paid special attention to unsafe driving on Interstate 240, including texting while driving, speeding, and driving under the influence of alcohol.

One Memphis Police Department spokeswoman noted that “many citizens have expressed concern for the reckless drivers and other violators” on Interstate 240, Interstate 40, Interstate 55, and other roads in Memphis. From March 3, 2012, through March 28, 2012, Memphis Police Department officers handed out 4552 tickets on Interstate 240, an average of 175 per day.

To reduce the amount of Memphis car accidents, police officers actively look to stop all forms of unsafe driving, including speeding, driving under the influence of alcohol, texting while driving, and distracted driving. Many times, police enforcement works since drivers alter their behavior to avoid a ticket or arrest. However, it is impossible for law enforcement officials to be everywhere, and some drivers will nevertheless decide to disregard the risks of unsafe driving.
