Many Nashvillians and Middle Tennessee residents use at least one of the area’s many interstates every day to get to and from work. Driving on the interstate is a much different experience than driving on a rural road or urban street. The speed limit is higher, the traffic volume is often greater, and you have to know how to properly enter and exit the roadway.
To reduce your risks the next time you drive on the interstate, keep these tips in mind:
Stay out of the far-left lane unless passing: For decades, drivers have complained about other motorists hanging out in the far-left lane of highways and interstates, which slows traffic. Now, it’s against the law to do so, due to Tennessee’s Slowpoke Law. Unless you’re passing another vehicle, don’t drive in the far-left lane.
Switch lanes ahead of time: One of the most dangerous things you can do on the interstate is to try and traverse multiple lanes of traffic all at once to get to your exit. When you know you need to exit, get in the right lane as early as possible.
Avoid using cruise control in inclement weather: Cruise control can make driving on long, flat stretches of interstate easier and more convenient. But it can be dangerous when you’re driving on slick asphalt, as your vehicle may accelerate erratically and too quickly for the conditions. Accelerate and brake manually unless roads are dry.

Always very professional. When we first called we had no idea if we even had a case, they told us we did. And even though the resolution took a little bit longer than expected, the wait was worth it. They get results and I really appreciated that they consistently gave me updates on the status of my case without me even asking. Thank you Ponce Law!

Have you ever been caught between a Hyundai and a hard place? I have, Ponce Law was a call away and helped me through the entire process. Very friendly staff who explained every step of the process to me and made sure I understood what was going on. When I got injured I didn't know what to do but I'm glad I put in a call to Ponce Law.

I was driving down I-40 when I got hit by another car. I called Michael Ponce because I wanted an attorney right here in Nashville. As soon as I called, I knew I made the right decision, and Ponce Law got me the money I needed to get back on my feet. I highly recommend Ponce Law!
After my car accident, I wasn’t sure if I needed an attorney. I called Ponce Law for a free consultation. I’m so glad I made the call. I wanted a local attorney, and from the first call, to when my case was settled, I felt heard, valued, and taken care of.
I was on I-40 coming into Nashville and a car ran into the back of me. The accident was serious, and I needed surgery. I did ask an attorney friend of mine whom I should call, and he said call Ponce Law. The folks at Ponce Law were outstanding and got us a large settlement.
