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:
Cell Phones

Have you noticed all of the people driving while talking on a Cell Phone? I’ll share another discovery I have made also, about one third of all our crashes now are the result of the drivers either being on the phone or trying to enter information on the phone while driving. I would hope that the Law Makers upon reviewing these numbers would restrict the use of Cell Phones while driving. We as Police Officers when we observe erratic driving due to being on the phone and driving will stop the Driver and issue a citation for Failure to Devote Full Attention to ones Driving.

Any Traffic Questions or Concerns feel free to contact me at my email address.
