Rutherford County Traffic Safety Task Force participate in Operation Southern Slow Down

Increases of traffic crashes on New Salem Highway prompted the Rutherford County Traffic Safety Task Force to focus on speeding drivers today, a Murfreesboro Police lieutenant said.

“In addition, we have received several complaints of speeding and drag racing in the same area,” said Lt. Greg Walker.

That’s why task force members from the Tennessee Highway Patrol, Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office and Murfreesboro Police will conduct traffic enforcement from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday from Warrior Drive to Rockvale Elementary School.

“They will be will be focusing on slowing drivers down but will also be looking for other moving violations as well,” Walker said.

Their enforcement is part of “Operation Southern Slowdown” a speed enforcement and education campaign from July 18-24 in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, and Tennessee.
