The Tennessee Highway Patrol last week followed behind TDOT Help Trucks in an event labeled Operation S.O.S., or Safety on the Smart ways. The goal was to educate and inform motorists on the importance of moving over to give space for all who work on and along the highways.
The move-over law requires drivers to move over or slow down for emergency and service workers who are working along the highway.
Operation S.O.S. resulted in the THP issuing 41 move-over citations, one texting and driving citation and one DUI arrest.

The Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency has confirmed at least nine cougar sightings in Middle and West Tennessee. There have been several reports of cougars in East Tennessee but none of those sightings have been officially verified. However, wildlife experts expect cougars, which are native to Tennessee and were hunted out, to return to the Plateau and East Tennessee eventually. The big cats would be helpful in controlling the deer population and reducing deer/vehicle collisions.
