Poole re-elected head national road safety group

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee's chief road safety official has been re-elected as head of the national Governors Highway Safety Association.

Kendell Poole, the director of the Tennessee Governor's Highway Safety Office, was voted in to a second yearlong term at the association's annual meeting in San Diego last month.

Poole was named director of the Tennessee road safety office by then-Gov. Phil Bredesen in 2006, and continues to serve in that role under current Gov. Bill Haslam.

Poole said in a release that his priorities will be addressing impaired driving, occupant protection and speeding. The association will also work with states to secure funding under deferral highway safety programs.
