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.
