On July 1, he Catoosa County Sheriff’s Office will begin one month of concentrated patrol efforts to make the roadways of Catoosa County safer.
During the month, additional deputies will be assigned different days, and times to hold concentrated patrols throughout the County to identify distracted driving, speeding and impaired driving, along with all other violations of law.
Sheriff Gary R. Sisk said, “We are still seeing a number of people not obeying the hands-free law in Georgia and with Tennessee’s law going into effect July 1, now is a good time to remind everyone operating a motor vehicle on the roadways in Georgia about the law already in effect.”
This is in correlation with the Georgia Governor’s Office of Highway Safety 100 Days of Summer H.E.A.T. (Highway Enforcement of Aggressive Traffic) campaign designed to reduce fatal crash counts during Georgia’s deadly holiday driving period from Memorial Day through Labor Day.
