HAPPENING NOW: @TNHSO is kicking off Operation Southern Shield. It’s a week-long enforcement that focuses on several issues like speeding and distracted driving. @WRCB

Happy 4th of July! Please remember to drive safe and distraction-free to all your Independence Day festivities!

Tomorrow, in honor of Merritt, we encourage everyone to unplug and hang up. And if this isn't entirely possible, then make a plan to #hangup while driving. This could save your life, and countless others. #justdrive https://t.co/4oDXxsEycD
