Tennessee Legislators Introduce Bills to Outlaw Drowsy Driving

March 6, 2007

NASHVILLE, TN – Tennessee state legislators have introduced two new bills targeting drowsy driving. Senator Doug Jackson introduced legislation that would permit police to charge drowsy drivers with criminal negligence if they injure or kill someone because lack of sleep impaired their driving.

Rep. David Sheppard has introduced a companion bill on the House side. The National Highway Safety Administration estimates that each year 100,000 police-reported crashes result directly from drowsy driving.
