These days, drinking and driving isn't the only thing Tennessee State Troopers have to worry about on the roads.
"We see increases in crashes and possibility of crashes where texting was involved in those vehicle crashes. We're seeing it more and more on the roadways. We don't want to see it become that big of a problem before we react to this issue," says Lt. John Harmon with the Tennessee Highway Patrol.
As part of their "Stay Alive on 75" campaign, The THP uses a tractor trailer driven by a state trooper to crack down on distracted driving and other reckless behavior behind the wheel.
"What they do is observe the driver, they verify it, they call ahead and a trooper driving around will go stop the motorist, talk to them, at that point they will receive am enforcement action."
Texting and driving causes nearly 1.6 million accidents a year in the U.S.
Texting drivers spend 10% of the drive outside of their own lanes.
And one in five drivers admit they surf the web while driving.
"While texting and driving or reading texts while driving, your eyes are not focused on the roadway, they are more focused on texting, you are not seeing the on-coming traffic where you are driving so texting and driving is just as or more dangerous than drinking and driving. "
The THP program is designed to make sure everyone stays safe on the roadways.
"It is very dangerous. In the fast paced world that we live in, everybody is in a hurry. And everybody needs to buckle up, don't text and drive and don't drink and drive."
