NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A new law that goes into effect July 1 means drivers in Tennessee caught without insurance could have their car towed.

House Bill 606, which was approved earlier this year and is now law, is aimed at getting uninsured drivers off the roads.

Starting in July, law enforcement will be authorized to have someone’s vehicle towed if they’re caught driving without insurance.

The law also triples the fine from $100 to $300.

“With increasing the fine, we hope to make it cheaper for folks to just go ahead and get insurance and follow the rules,” said Rep. William Lamberth (R – Sumner County).

The move also aims to make it easier for law enforcement and DMV clerks to determine if a driver has insurance, whether they have proof or not.

A new system that will be in place by summer 2016 will allow authorities to ping a vehicle’s VIN, so a database can relay whether the owner has insurance.

According to the Insurance Information Institute, Tennessee had the sixth highest rate of uninsured motorists in the country in 2012, with 20.1 percent.

The national average that year was 12.6 percent.

This coming Sunday is Mother's Day if your mother is still here on this earth go visit her, if it is to where you can give her a call and tell her that you love her. If she is no longer here think of the good times you had while you could spend time with her. Please remember that you and your family would not be here today if not for your mother. God bless our Mother's.

Terrorism
.

Terrorist attacks like the ones we experienced on September 11, 2001 have left many concerned about the possibility of future incidents of terrorism in the United States and their potential impact. They have raised uncertainty about what might happen next, increasing stress levels. There are things you can do to prepare for terrorist attacks and reduce the stress that you may feel now and later should another emergency arise. Taking preparatory action can reassure you and your children that you can exert a measure of control even in the face of such events.







What You Can Do to Prepare for Terrorism
.

Finding out what can happen is the first step. Once you have determined the events possible and their potential in your community, it is important that you discuss them with your family or household. Develop a disaster plan together.

What to Do If a Terrorism Event Occurs
.

Remain calm and be patient.
Follow the advice of local emergency officials.
Listen to your radio or television for news and instructions.
If the event occurs near you, check for injuries. Give first aid and get help for seriously injured people.
If the event occurs near your home while you are there, check for damage using a flashlight. Do not light matches or candles or turn on electrical switches. Check for fires, fire hazards and other household hazards. Sniff for gas leaks, starting at the water heater. If you smell gas or suspect a leak, turn off the main gas valve, open windows, and get everyone outside quickly.
Shut off any other damaged utilities.
Confine or secure your pets.
Call your family contact—do not use the telephone again unless it is a life-threatening emergency.
Check on your neighbors, especially those who are elderly or disabled.

A Word on What Could Happen
.

As we’ve learned from previous events, the following things can happen after a terrorist attack:

There can be significant numbers of casualties and/or damage to buildings and the infrastructure. So employers need up-to-date information about any medical needs you may have and on how to contact your designated beneficiaries.
Heavy law enforcement involvement at local, state and federal levels follows a terrorist attack due to the event's criminal nature.
Health and mental health resources in the affected communities can be strained to their limits, maybe even overwhelmed.
Extensive media coverage, strong public fear and international implications and consequences can continue for a prolonged period.
Workplaces and schools may be closed, and there may be restrictions on domestic and international travel.
You and your family or household may have to evacuate an area, avoiding roads blocked for your safety.
Clean-up may take many months.
