NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — On Monday, April 8, the Tennessee Highway Safety Office (THSO) will partner various local and state law enforcement agencies to launch Operation Incognito throughout Tennessee.

The campaign was developed last year to help educate Tennesseeans on the state's distracted driving initiative, called "the bus tour." The launch of the OI campaign will also help to emphasize Tennessee's "move over law."

"The primary focus of Operation Incognito is to reduce distracted driving, serious injury crashes, and fatalities," said THSO Director Vic Donoho. "A secondary focus will promote awareness for high-risk construction zones across Tennessee. As distracted driving crashes continue to increase, the THSO and partners are committed to enhancing the motoring public's safety through education and enforcement."

The OI campaign will also promote National Work Zone Awareness Week, which is April 8-12.
