Empty roads are not a free pass to speed. Your own safety on the roadway is important, even if there are no other vehicles in sight. #SlowDownTN Read more: tntrafficsafety.org/speeding

A child’s body temperature rises 3-5 times faster than an adult’s does. Even when parked in the shade, leaving them in a car can be deadly within a short time. Never leave a child behind in a car. @NHTSA Learn more: nhtsa.gov/heatstroke

Don't Forget Someone
Based on 2010 Census data, 93% of Tennessee is rural. Roads in rural areas can be especially dangerous due to the lack of streetlights and other safety features, and may have unique hazards that drivers will have to look out for. #SlowDownTN Read more: tntrafficsafety.org/speeding

Did you know? Rear end collisions are the number one cause of farm vehicle crashes. It takes less than 10 seconds for a car traveling 55 mph to close the gap on a slow-moving vehicle. When you spot flashing lights or the orange slow-moving vehicle sign, slow down immediately and increase following distance. #ShareTheRoad

Mixing low speeds and high speeds in the same roadway is a recipe for serious crashes. Except in the rare event of an emergency, interstate highways are only for motor vehicles.

A pet roaming around a moving vehicle can be distracting, and putting themselves and you in danger. To travel safely this summer with your pets, put them in the backseat or cargo area with a crash-tested harness, or a sturdy, well-ventilated crate. You buckle up for safety, so make sure your pets are also secure for the trip!

☀️ Heat and alcohol don’t mix! Dehydration from summer heat lowers the body’s alcohol tolerance, meaning impairment happens sooner. Don't risk it – always opt for a sober ride. #DriveSober Read more: tntrafficsafety.org/drunk-driving
