To Reduce Car Wrecks

A growing number of crashes that result from negligent driving behaviors, including texting and talking on cell phones, has prompted many states to ban cell phone use while driving. The problem is that police are finding the bans hard to enforce. Instead of calling for new legislation, the Tennessee Highway Patrol (THP) is getting creative.


NBC News reports that the THP is using a semi-truck to catch drivers who are texting. One officer drives the truck and pulls up alongside other motorists on the highway. His passenger—another patrolman—looks for texting and alerts other officers when he sees it. Despite the truck’s size, the THP says that many drivers don’t even notice it coming because they are so distracted by their phones.
