Tennessee State Trooper, Highway patrol officer, Gordon Roberts does not take kindly to drivers who break the law… in fact, he rather looks down on them.

The Tennessee State Trooper has an ingenious way of spotting motorists who drink, text or don’t wear seat belts at the wheel - by patrolling the motorways in a 40-tonne lorry.

The 18-wheel juggernaut gives him the perfect vantage point from which to peer into other cars and spot any un-driver-like behaviour.

Tennessee’s First Black State Trooper Dies James A. Hall, 73, the first black person ever selected to serve as a Tennessee state trooper, passed away on Saturday, June 9. Hall was hired on August 1, 1964, and sent to the Driver’s License Division, partly because it could not be determined how or when he would be assigned to duties as a road trooper. It was not until October 1, 1965, that Commissioner Greg O’Rear made the monumental step toward diversity. Three black males, James Hall, Claude Johnson, and John Grady, were commissioned as state troopers. Because Johnson was processed first, he was long regarded as the first black state trooper. However, James Hall had been hired 14 months earlier and was forced to wait until “the time was right.” At the height of the Civil Rights Movement, the three became not only the first black troopers in Tennessee, but the first in the South. Trooper Hall was assigned to the Nashville District and served with distinction before retiring in 1972.
