Tennessee — The Tennessee Highway Patrol is cracking down on dangerous drivers to prevent deaths during this holiday travel weekend.

THP will be conducting a “No Refusal” weekend for suspected drunk drivers in several counties, including Shelby County.

For those planning on have a drink or two this weekend, AAA towing service is again offering its “Tow To Go” program.

Just call any time this weekend for a free ride home for you and your car anywhere within a ten mile radius.

If you need AAA, their number is 855-2-TOW-2-Go.

      What you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    The Men and Women of the Tennessee Highway Patrol, as well as our local Police and Sheriffs Departments are out putting their lives on the line to try and keep our roads safe for us and our familys. Im glad their out their checking for DUIs and keeping us safe. It makes me feel safe while traveling to see family this weekend.

    Accidentally accurate title. They’re cracking down on holiday travel. Stay off the roads lest you come across a cop with a mentality that matches the headline.

      Won’t be much longer before we have to contact the Department of Citizen Travel months ahead of time and beg to be granted Vacation Papers.

    I made it to Subway and then to my wife’s place of work without being pulled over. Maybe they knew it wasn’t holiday related travel. The NSA probably told them.
