KC Sheriff’s Department Joins State Seat Belt Enforcement

           The Knox County Sheriff’s Department is one of many statewide law enforcement groups involved in the SAVE campaign.  SAVE stands for Stop Arm Violation Enforcement.

           Over 200 agencies statewide are banding together as part of the increased enforcement.  In April, officials counted over 2,000 observed violations  statewide.  Some County buses are equipped with cameras to catch stop arm violators, and be a tool for possible fines for those violators.

           Authorities remind you in Knox County, there are no exceptions on any roads county-wide to keep you from stopping for a school bus stop arm.  The rule also applies to traffic in the opposite direction — even on undivided four-lane highways.
