House votes against Tenn. aggressive driving law

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee House has voted against a bill to create an offense of aggressive driving in the state.
The bill, sponsored by Republican Rep. Eric Swafford of Pikeville, failed on a 54-37 vote Monday after several lawmakers raised concerns that the measure would confuse the state's existing law on reckless driving.
Swafford's bill would have made it a misdemeanor if drivers committed two driving violations such as passing on the right, failing to use a blinker or speeding while placing another person in danger of bodily harm.
