AP Wednesday May 24, 2017

Vanderbilt University Medical Center officials are warning that doctors are already treating numerous people injured in accidents involving all-terrain vehicles and it's not even the peak trauma season of summer yet.
VUMC officials say staff has treated nearly 50 ATV accident victims since the beginning of the year, including 34 adults and an additional 14 children.
Officials, in their press release, say two common problems doctor see with the injuries are the result of not wearing helmets and from having more than one rider on a vehicle equipped for only one person.
Hospital officials say children under 16 should not ride ATVs due to the risk of serious injuries, especially head trauma. They also recommend wearing a helmet certified by the U.S. Department of Transportation or the Snell Memorial Foundation.

Haslam Signs License Plate Bill
AP Tuesday May 23, 2017

Gov. Bill Haslam has signed a bill creating a new Tennessee license plate design featuring the phrase "In God We Trust."
The original version of the bill would have required the phrase to be printed on all license plates issued in the state. But after the State Attorney General raised constitutional concerns, sponsors agreed to make the new design optional.
The new law requires the Department of Revenue to design plates to include the optional "In God We Trust" language once current stocks are exhausted.
Senate Democratic leader Lee Harris of Memphis was the only lawmaker in either chamber to vote against the bill after questioning why the new plates will not require the same extra fees as other specialty plates.
