LT. Brian Eckelson Reminds Motorist to Use Headlights During Inclement Weather
Lt. Brian Eckelson, Crossville Police Dept. Friday October 20, 2017

Lieutenant Brian Eckelson with the Crossville Police Department is reminding motorists about the proper use of headlights. It's a given that you need to put your headlights on when it is dark outside, but did you know there is a legal time frame for headlight usage? Tennessee law requires that headlights shall be displayed during the period from one half (1/2) hour after sunset to one half (1/2) hour before sunrise. Headlights are also required during fog, smoke, rain, mist or snow and at all other times when there is not sufficient light to render clearly discernible any person on the road at a distance of two hundred feet (200ft) ahead of the vehicle. Lt. Ecklelson points out that even if YOU can see, headlights help other motorists see YOU, especially if you are driving a dark or grey colored vehicle. Lt. Eckleson also says it is a statistical fact that the more often drivers use their headlights, as prescribed by law, the less often police officers have to use their fancy blue lights to enforce that law. To view the State Law on headlights, see Lt. Eckelson's post on the Crossville-Cumberland County Crime Stoppers Facebook page.

The test scores are used as part of teacher evaluations. Almost 10,000 tests were incorrectly scored across the state. However, the mistake will reportedly not affect overall scores for the county school system.
