Ok, someone pointed this statute out to me:
TN 55-8-102. Provisions refer to vehicles upon highways - Exceptions.
(a) The provisions of this chapter and chapter 10, parts 1-5 of this title, relating to the operation of vehicles, refer exclusively to the operation of vehicles upon highways, except where a different place is specifically referred to in a given section.
And here's the law:
TN 55-8-149. Requirements for stop signs - Vehicles and streetcars must stop at stop signs - Penalty.
(c) Every driver of a vehicle and every operator of a streetcar approaching a stop sign shall stop before entering the crosswalk on the near side of the intersection, or in the event there is no crosswalk, shall stop at a clearly marked stop line, but if none, then at the point nearest the intersecting roadway where the driver or operator has a view of approaching traffic on the intersecting roadway before entering the intersection, except when directed to proceed by a police officer or traffic control signal.
I'm guessing a provision of a chapter is the parts of a statute? Meaning statute 55-8-149 would be considered a provision of chapter 8, and would be included in the meaning of statute 55-8-102?
So, that would mean statute 55-8-149 would only apply to vehicles driven upon highways, and not vehicles driven on private parking lots? Is this correct?
