Clarksville, TN – In July of this year, Tennessee joined about 17 other states in implementing a cellphone law. In the Volunteer state, drivers could face a fine of up to $200.00 for using their cellphone while driving. Drivers 18 and older will be prohibited from holding or physically supporting a phone while driving.
My “unofficial” observation? Nothing’s changed.
My brothers in law enforcement tell me that their superiors have told them to just give “warnings” until the general pubic understands the new law.
From 2015 to 2017, Tennessee topped the list for cellphone distracted driving deaths nationwide according to a new study by ValuePenguin of National Highway Traffic Administration data.

One police officer was injured trying to stop one of them and officials are trying to identify them.
In a later report, one of the news outlets managed to get an interview with a young lady in the group, (who was not identified), and she said that their group was a “positive” rally to show young people that there was more to life than just “drugs and guns.”

Clarksville, TN – One of the first things I ever noticed about riding a motorcycle was what I saw other drivers doing behind the wheel. Having to be so aware of my surroundings, I’m able to see what other motorists are doing, BESIDES driving their vehicle.
I guess it’s just the nature of the beast. You MUST keep your eyes out for danger. I learned very quickly that most all of the other traffic was driving distracted. And I don’t just mean the cell phone.
Everything from putting on makeup, to holding a sandwich in one hand and a drink in the other. It just seems to be the way of the world, that we must be “multi tasking” while driving. It sucks for bikers!

Clarksville, TN – I shared this image on Facebook recently and it’s been viewed from my account, 75,000 times. It obviously struck the same cord with you that it struck with me. It caused me to write this post.
When I began this journey, I took it VERY seriously. Not only was it a financial decision, but it was a safety issue. I was 63 years old when I entered this lifestyle and there were questions.
Could I still ride a motorcycle? Was I strong enough, were my reactions still sharp, did I have the stamina? I felt that I could answer “yes” to all of those concerns. Even though there are many factors that are completely out of my control, I knew that I wanted this, I NEEDED this and I was DEFINITELY going to do this and I KNEW it was dangerous.
