Second Chance for FTA Offenders
Sheriff Mike Allen says “if you’re tired of looking over your shoulder or in your rearview mirror and want to get your warrant handled without getting arrested, ACT NOW! Just come to the West Memphis District Court on the days shown in the link and avoid arrest. Get the matter taken care of and get your driving privileges restored with the state so you can get on with your life with less worry. I want to thank Judge Thorne for his insight and leadership with this program and I hope those who need it take advantage of the program. We ask the public help us get the word out on this great program by sharing the link. Click here for details and schedule.

Sheriff Allen reminds you that Arkansas’s new “Move Over” law took effect on Friday, January 24, 2014.
The law requires drivers to move over not only for emergency vehicles, but also the categories in the list below displaying blue, red, amber, white, or green lights that are flashing, revolving, or rotating.
- Arkansas Highway Department Vehicles
- Construction Contractors Vehicles
- Utility Company Vehicles
- Tow Trucks
- Or any other authorized vehicles
If motorists see the described vehicles, they must move to the farthest possible lane or position from the authorized vehicle. If a driver can’t move over, he or she must reduce speed and exercise caution.
If a driver is found guilty of violating the law, they can be fined up to $500, confined to jail or both. The court may also order community service or suspend a person’s driver’s license up to six months.
