According to the Murfreesboro Daily News Journal, the Tennessee Senate has introduced a bill aimed at promoting safety on Tennessee roads and streets and preventing auto accidents.¬† The bill calls for traffic cameras to encourage drivers to follow the law and drive safely.¬† For example, the cameras would be able to catch drivers that speed or drivers that do not come to a complete stop at a red light before making a right turn.¬† If passed, the bill would become law on July 1, 2011.

According to the Memphis Commercial Appeal, Senator Lamar Alexander of Tennessee and Senator Mark Pryor of Arkansas have introduced a bill requiring commercial trucks to have on-board recording devices to ensure truck drivers comply with hours-of-service rules.¬† The Commercial Driver Compliance Improvement Act would require commercial trucks to have tamper-free recording devices that identify each driver and his precise location at all times. Currently, drivers can only drive for 11 of every 14 on-duty hours. ¬†Senator Alexander said existing regulations on hours are difficult to enforce since drivers keep manual logs.¬† Alexander also said the electronic and neutral recording devices would save the government and truck drivers time, paper, and money.
Truck drivers are subject to Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR), which mandate the amount of hours they can drive each day and require them to log their exact locations.¬† If truck drivers do not follow these guidelines and regulations, they could be negligent and more likely to get in an accident. If you have been involved in a car accident with a truck on Interstate 55, or Highway 63 (Arkansas) or Interstate 40 or Interstate 240 (Tennessee), call the trucking accident lawyers at Nahon, Saharovich, and Trotz at 1-800-LAW-4004 or 901-683-7000 (Memphis), or 870-931-0500 (Jonesboro).¬† Nahon, Saharovich, and Trotz, also known as NST Law, has represented clients injured in trucking accidents in Arkansas and Tennessee for over twenty years.
