New Law Allows for Tennessee Convictions to Be Expunged

Motorcycle Awareness Month in Tennessee

With summer just around the corner more motorcyclists will soon be hitting the road. May is designated as motorcycle awareness month, and the Tennessee Highway Patrol (THP) and Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security are encouraging drivers to be conscious of motorcycle riders on the road, and motorcycle riders to drive safely.

Boating Under the Influence in Tennessee

With summer just around the corner, many Tennesseans may be looking forward to boating outings on the state's lakes and rivers.

DUI Mug Shot Publication is Big Business

For the most part, the money in these trust funds comes from the bankruptcies of numerous companies that mined, made, sold, or used asbestos or asbestos-containing products.
