Here I sit on Super Bowl Eve pondering the meaning of life and the beauty of the people around me. Reality check! Here I sit on Super Bowl Eve surfing the internet trying to find funny things to laugh at! Before we get to that, though, this is a good time to remind everyone that our local police are out in force this weekend looking for drunk drivers. Here’s what the city says:
While the New England Patriots and New York Giants face off at the Super Bowl this weekend, the LaVergne Police Department will be on patrol looking for drunk drivers. Using grant funding for overtime pay, more police officers will be on the streets throughout the weekend conducting alcohol saturation patrols.
Officers will conduct aggressive patrols to search for alcohol violations between 5:00 p.m. and 4:00 a.m. throughout the Super Bowl weekend. In addition to seeking out people who are driving under the influence, police will also be looking for underage possession or consumption of alcohol and open alcohol containers.
“The LPD is working in conjunction with other area law enforcement agencies as part of the Governors Highway Safety Office efforts to find and remove drinking drivers on the highways,” said Chief Mike Walker. “We will also be doing bar checks and working with other agencies on sobriety check points.”
The LPD is working with Smyrna Police Department, Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office, Murfreesboro Police Department, and the Tennessee Highway Patrol in Rutherford County.
If you drink, remember to have a designated driver. “Booze it and lose it.”
LaVergne is crawling with police tonight, so if you’re a drinker I’d take them seriously!
Now for some fun with links!
Planking. (Seriously? Do you really have NOTHING to do?)
Speaking of police, here’s what NOT to say to a cop!
Pitfalls of autocorrect! (Caution, STRONG language!!!)
Boomshine. How to waste some time!
