Move-Over Law Ignored by Many
Wednesday August 5, 2015

In 2011, the Move-Over Law was put into effect to protect police officers, EMTs, tow truck drivers and stranded motorists.
According to the Tennessee Highway Patrol, in the last five years 4,107 drivers have been ticketed for not moving over. And since 2005, 330 first responders were hit out on the roads.

 


Seat Belt Usage Down
Wednesday August 5, 2015

The Governor's Highway Safety Office and the Tennessee Highway Patrol have announced a decrease in seat belt use. The new statewide rate has been finalized at 86.2 percent for the month of June. This percentage represents a decrease from the previous usage rate of 87.7 percent.
Governor's Highway Safety Office Director Kendell Poole said the decrease represents tens of thousands of Tennesseans not wearing a seat belt this year.
Earlier this year, Gov. Haslam signed a bill that will increase Tennessee's seat belt fine beginning in January 2016. The fine will increase from $10 to $25 for first offenders and from $25 to $50 for subsequent offenses.
As of August 3rd, preliminary statistics indicate 519 people have died on Tennessee roadways, a decrease of 35 compared to this time last year. To date, 47.9 percent of the state's fatalities have been unrestrained motorists.
