Law enforcement officers gather to kick off "100 Days of Summer HEAT"
CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) -- The Governor's Highway Safety Office and over 150 local law enforcement officers gathered, Thursday, to kick off the "100 Days of Summer Heat" enforcement.
The campaign officially starts June 1 but law enforcement is getting an early start with the "Hands Across the Border" enforcement event as well as the "Click It or Ticket" mobilization in Chattanooga.
Both the director of the Tennessee and Georgia Offices of Highway Safety were in attendance, as well as a number of sheriff's, chief's and other law enforcement personnel.
The 100 Days of Summer H.E.A.T. campaign is to reduce high-fatality crash-counts during the potentially deadly holiday driving period from Memorial Day through the Fourth of July and Labor Day.
