There are numerous highways traveling through Tennessee, and local drivers can expect to encounter trucks on both the main highways and smaller thoroughfares. Drivers in the region may be interested to know that the fatalities of truck-related accidents increased from 2011 to 2012. The information is provided by the U.S. Department of Transportation National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The Homeland Security Commissioner has teamed up with the Tennessee Department of Safety and other law enforcement organizations in an effort to reduce roadway fatalities. The goal is to reduce car and truck accident fatalities by a factor of 15 percent during the coming year.
When discussing or reading about certain laws, it can be easy for outsiders to see the matters as somewhat cold and impersonal. Statute "XYZ," for example, might read like a technical manual, but when applied to real life holds the future of people's lives and peace of mind in its hands.
