Cop's Corner with Captain Cupp

Captain David G. Cupp

Captain Cupp is the daytime shift commander for the Bartlett Police Department. Each week Captain Cupp will provide citizens of Bartlett with information useful to Bartlett residents concerning traffic and public safety and little known facts about the Bartlett Police Department.

This week's topic:
Proper Lane Use

As many of you are aware the Center Lane on larger streets is a Turn Lane. This lane is not intended to be used as a “Merge Lane”. When vehicles enter onto the larger street from private drives or smaller side streets they are not to occupy this turn lane for obvious reasons. These will most of the time result in an accident causing you to be the at-fault driver.

Remember when entering from a side street or a private drive it must be done in one movement and not in a stop and go fashion.
