Road rage is always bad. When you are driving around a city like Knoxville or in the country surrounding it, there are more than enough risks to driving. There is no need to increase your risk of a car accident by participating in a road rage incident.
Texting while driving is a dangerous activity. Especially for a teen driver. The Tennessee Highway Patrol (THP) is working with high school students to raise awareness of the danger of texting and driving.
Cars are something that are so familiar that we often forget just how dangerous they are. In most places, they are a necessity. You have to have a vehicle to go from place to place. And because of this ubiquity, and because most of the time we end our journey safely, whether across town or across the country, we forget.
When most people hear DUI, they think drunk driving caused by alcohol impairment. And for most cases, that is the most likely cause, but the statutory language is driving under the influence. Alcohol is not the only cause of impairment that can lead to a DUI charge.
