Tennessee Highway Patrol - THPNashville, TN – The Tennessee Highway Patrol (THP) plans to increase patrols and utilize a variety of traffic safety enforcement tools to reduce the number of serious injury and fatal crashes across the state during this year’s Memorial Day holiday period.

I have instructed Troopers to proactively enforce seat belt laws, reckless and impaired driving this weekend and throughout the summer months.
