Popular vehicle additions many vehicle owners have chosen to install are smoke-colored vinyl wraps or lenses on the head and taillights. These and other readily available products are purely for show and off-roadway use, and may not be used when driving on public roads. These products reduce lens transparency to the point that the lights are often barely visible, creating a safety hazard for the car’s driver and other motorists.
The Sevierville Police Department has scheduled a 12-hour Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) class for women on March 7, 14, 21 and 28, from 6:00PM-9:00PM, at the Sevierville Civic Center in the City of Sevierville Municipal Complex. (NOTE: participants must attend each class date; no make-up classes will be available.) The class is free of charge and is open to all interested women (limited to 20 participants). The purpose of the class is to develop and enhance self-defense options, so they may become viable considerations to a woman if she is attacked.
