Shoney’s Restaurant chain is the latest victim of a data breach. Best American Hospitality Corp. says malware had been installed remotely on a point of sale equipment that processed credit cards used at some Shoney’s restaurants in Tennessee and at least 9 other states in the South and Midwest. This affects anyone who used a debit or credit card at Shoney’s between December 27 and March 6. The company released a list of breached stores and while the Crossville Shoney’s was not on that list, the store at 880 South Jefferson Avenue in Cookeville was breached. At least 11 locations across Tennessee were also hacked. So, if you’ve eaten at a Shoney’s Restaurant lately, you should check your bank accounts and credit card statements. You should immediately report any unauthorized charges to your card issuer because payment card rules generally provide that cardholders are not responsible for unauthorized charges reported in a timely manner. It is also advisable to check your credit report with credit bureaus including Equifax, Transunion and Experian, which offer free credit reports annually. You can also obtain a free credit report at https://www.annualcreditreport.com.

Tennessee’s first statewide Distracted Driving Enforcement Bus Tour yielded 224 traffic citations. From Monday, April 10, to Thursday, April 13, the Tennessee Highway Safety Office (THSO) and the Tennessee Highway Patrol (THP) partnered with local law enforcement agencies to promote National Distracted Driving Awareness Month. The THP provided a large, black and tan bus marked with THP logos to transport law enforcement as they observed motorists for traffic violations. During the tour, officers within the THP bus communicated to patrol vehicles on the road for execution of enforcement action. Each participating district conducted approximately one to two hours of enforcement. 21 citations were issued in Cookeville, 35 in Nashville and Knoxville had the highest number of citations issued at 81. Only 8 citations were issued in Chattanooga and Jackson had the lowest at 7. Throughout the tour, the THSO used #ThumbsDownTN to promote its third annual Thumbs Down to Texting and Driving campaign.
