Hundreds of troopers participate in I-40 Thanksgiving Challenge

Col. Sandra K. Karsten, superintendent of the Missouri State Highway Patrol, urges motorists to pay attention as they travel over the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

But that's nothing compared to what's expected starting Wednesday when the Thanksgiving travel period begins.

Beginning today, troopers across the state will conduct high-visibility enforcement focusing on impaired driving, seat belt use, careless driving and speeding. "It's $25, but what we're concerned about is you getting to where you're going alive and safe", Collins said.

It's for that reason Michigan State Police are continuing with a yearly initiative called Operation Care - that will last through the holiday season.

According to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol previous year five people were killed in five fatal crashes during the Thanksgiving holiday period. A Camden County Sheriff's Deputy's auto is a prime example, right before a chase, the deputy buckled up his seat belt at the last minute and it saved his life. "We're just enjoying our temperature so that's the plan for today", said Diaz. They warned about the dangers of distracted driving and the importance of seatbelts.

Mann says when people know there will be more officers on the road, they're more likely to drive safely.

On November 22, 2017, the day before Thanksgiving, the Nevada Highway Patrol's Southern Command social media accounts will be sharing content on the importance of not drinking and driving, and planning ahead for a sober ride home. During last year's holiday period, 292 arrests were made for driving under the influence.

VDOT's Thanksgiving traffic trends map shows that Tuesday evening and midday Wednesday are among the busiest times on Virginia highways for heading out of the D.C. area. That's what most people we talked to say they associate with turkey day. More crashes lead to more fatalities. If you have to travel on Sunday, the safest time to travel is in the early morning hours before 6 a.m. or later on between 8 p.m. and 11 p.m.
