What's that old saying? "If you talk the talk, you should walk the walk." It seems not every driver in Tennessee does that.

But at the same time, 27 percent of them admit to doing just that in the last month.

Teen tells story of accident to promote driving safety

A routine day turned into a nightmare for a Tennessee teen back in October 2010. He still doesn't remember what exactly happened, but it's believed that as he drove down Big Springs Road, he looked down at some point, causing him to swerve, over-correct and then slam into a tree.

Many states have adopted laws that require people who are convicted of driving drunk to get ignition interlock devices, which prevent them from starting their cars if they fail a Breathalyzer test. The state of Tennessee requires ignition interlock for those caught driving with blood-alcohol levels of .15 or more.

Chase leads to car striking, injuring sheriff's deputy

Evading police is never a smart idea, and initiating a chase is even more foolish. Not only are there significant legal implications, but it puts you and your passengers, police officers and innocent bystanders at unnecessary risk.
