Gibbons asks troopers to be his drivers

Safety Commissioner Bill Gibbons has repeatedly had Tennessee state troopers drive him halfway to his Memphis home at least 31 times in the last two and a half years, reports News Channel 5's Phil Williams.

The trips include a trooper driving his vehicle with a second driver tailing them until they reach Exit 108 on I-40, at which point Gibbons drives himself the rest of the way home and the troopers turn back. According to the report, Gibbons has used the troopers as chauffeurs at least 31 times. That averages to about once a month, although officials say it may have been more.
