On November 13, the Tennessee Highway Safety Office (THSO) will join various state and local partners, including the Crossville Police Department, to launch Operation Incognito (OI) statewide. The OI campaign was developed this year to evolve Tennessee’s fourth statewide distracted driving enforcement initiative, known as “the bus tour.” OI will also promote National Traffic Incident Response Week, which occurs November 11 – 17.
“The primary focus of Operation Incognito is to reduce distracted driving, serious injury traffic crashes, and fatalities,” said THSO Director Vic Donoho. “A secondary focus will include saturations of high-risk construction and utility maintenance zones to increase awareness. Drivers are encouraged to protect roadway workers by staying focused and alert at all times.”
The launch of OI on November 13 will serve to educate the public on the dangers of distracted driving and emphasize Tennessee’s “move over law.”
