NASHVILLE (AP) — The Tennessee Highway Patrol will target commercial vehicles this year in a campaign similar to others focusing on drunken drivers, motorists not wearing seat belts and drivers violating laws in work zones.
Operation “Speeding Trucks And Negligent Drivers” (STAND) will target commercial motor vehicles that speed, drive recklessly, follow too closely and change lanes improperly. Approximately 4,000 hours have been dedicated to this campaign through the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
THP Col. Mike Walker said in a news release that state troopers have been trying to save lives one stop at a time for 80 years, and this mission will continue in 2010.
