Highway Patrol Giving
Exams for Driver’s License
The state highway patrol will begin road inspection of Tennessee automobiles as an accident prevention measure, Chief Joe Boyd Williams said Monday. The automobile inspection, to be conducted by trained inspectors, is the second phase of the state’s effort to cut the tremendous traffic toll on Tennessee highways.
Later, Chief Williams said, auto inspection will become an integral part of the examination of motorists for driver’s licenses.
Chief Williams said that between 400 and 500 drivers licenses issued during the pre-examination period have been suspended for reckless and drunken driving.
