Tennessee Highway Patrol - THPNashville, TN – Colonel Tracy Trott of the Tennessee Highway Patrol (THP) has recorded a Tennessee “Call to Action Traffic Safety Video” requesting a commitment from every Tennessee motorist to be safe. The message is direct: The time is here, the time is now to stop highway related traffic deaths. It is your time to do what you must to protect yourself and your loved ones.

“If you speed, don’t wear your seat belt, drive distracted, impaired or have reckless driver behaviors, then it is time to ask yourself, why? We care about your safety, we ask that you care too. These are questions the THP and law enforcement across Tennessee are asking each and every day. Remember, in 2015 Tennessee had 961 fatalities on our roadways. That is unacceptable.
