This past Monday (April 8), the Tennessee Highway Safety Office (THSO) joined various state and local partners while launching Operation Incognito (OI) statewide.
Chief of Staff TN Dept of Safety and Homeland Security Terry Ashe stated that distracted driving is a huge concern...
The Operation Incognito campaign was developed last year to evolve Tennessee's statewide distracted driving enforcement and education initiative, known as "the bus tour."
Derrick Stewart, Colonel of the TN Highway Patrol said...
OI will also promote National Work Zone Awareness Week, which occurs April 8 - 12.
"The primary focus of Operation Incognito is to reduce distracted driving, serious injury crashes, and fatalities," said THSO Director Vic Donoho. "A secondary focus will promote awareness for high-risk construction zones across Tennessee. As distracted driving crashes continue to increase, the THSO and partners are committed to enhancing the motoring public's safety through education and enforcement."
The launch of Operation Incognito served to educate the public on the dangers of distracted driving and emphasize Tennessee's "move over law."
