SAVANNAH, Tenn. — Police officers in the City of Savannah are writing an unusual number of tickets, not for what drivers are doing but for what they don’t have. According to Chief Gary Will Jr., his officers have written more than 460 tickets this year to drivers without insurance. Another 200-plus tickets have been written to people either driving with a suspended license or those driving who have never been issued a license. In January 2016, police said state law will allow any officer in Tennessee to have a driver’s vehicle towed if they’re driving without a license.
