The Traffic Section is part of the Special Operations Division. The section plays an intricate role in reducing traffic crashes, traffic related deaths, and impaired driving within Nashville and Davidson County. The Traffic Section works in partnership with the Tennessee Highway Safety Office and organizations such as Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), in an effort to eliminate drunk and impaired drivers on our roadways.
