TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - Rangers on the Natchez Trace Parkway took a hard line toward some drivers who didn't have a driver's license or proof of insurance.
They arranged for 28 vehicles to be towed during a four-hour checkpoint in the south part of Lee County.
Chief Ranger Sarah Davis says most of the drivers left without a vehicle had no license or couldn't prove the vehicle was insured.
Law enforcement officers usually will write a ticket for such an offense.
However, Davis says her rangers took such a tough stance because there is a correlation between fatal accidents and drivers who commit those crimes.
