TDOT and Department of Safety and Homeland Security are Teaming up on It’s Not OK Campaign for Fatality Rates

The Tennessee Department of Transportation and the Department of Safety and Homeland Security are teaming up to raise public awareness of the alarming fatality crash rate on Tennessee’s roadways.

It’s not OK campaign to highlight it’s not okay for the number of deadly crashes to be at an all-time high in a year where traffic was at an all-time low. “In 2020, fatalities increased nearly 7%, while traffic was down approximately 13% in Tennessee,” according to TDOT Commissioner Clay Bright who says “This number is staggering and it’s not OK. We want motorists to take notice and work with us in making a change.”

There were 1,211 fatalities on state highways. Of the 1,211 fatalities in 2020, 396 were unrestrained; that is 32% more than 2019.
