Tennessee Highway Patrol Peterbilt 379

Scary, huh?

Not exactly. This picture was staged by Cookeville, Tenn.-based eight-year driver and current Greatwide subagent/dispatcher Michael Winton when he came upon the somewhat infamous Tennessee Highway Patrol Peterbilt 379 parked locally two weekends back. “I just had to get a picture of it” with his custom pickup, he says.

Another interesting detail: Notice it’s hooked to a “No Zone” trailer, which I wrote about following Schneider’s 75th-anniversary event three years ago, where I came upon one. With any luck, the location here is a local school, and the THP was set up there to help teach young drivers about safe on-highway habits around big rigs.

Here’s wishing a safe weekend dodging the four-wheelers to you all — and hope against those big blue lights in the side-view. Here’s a somewhat closer look at the rig:
