CHP To Increase Patrol For Thanksgiving Weekend

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol announced that it will take part in the annual "Interstate 40 Challenge: The Drive to Zero Fatalities" for the Thanksgiving holiday period.

The leaders coming together to ask motorists to drive safely and to make sure they are protected in the event they are in a crash by wearing their seatbelts.

But that's nothing compared to what's expected starting Wednesday when the Thanksgiving travel period begins. Both the Council Bluffs Police and the safety bureau urge drivers to wear seat belts not just for Thanksgiving, but each day.

But Fonseca says she's just exercising her rights. "People have called and are offended by the language", he said. KTRK-TV reported that Karen Fonseca said the truck belongs to her husband but she often drives it.

"The main reason to obey all the basic driving rules is to arrive at your destination in one piece safe and sound alive and also to not get a ticket". "We've seen an 11 percent increase over this time a year ago".

From 11 a.m.to 11 p.m. Wednesday coast to coast, troopers will be out in force.

That's 43 percent more than the five-day holiday in 2015, when 14 people died in crashes.

To help prevent wrecks, NCSHP will participate in the I-40 Thanksgiving Challenge, which involves law enforcement agencies from eight states.

There were 1,331 crashes during the Thanksgiving holiday a year ago in Kentucky, resulting in 366 injuries and five fatalities. More cars on the road present the potential for more crashes.

In addition to distracted driving, troopers report that some of the primary violations they see during this time of year are failure to buckle up, speeding and impaired driving, according to the release. During the MEP, CHP officers will educate motorists and enforce traffic safety laws throughout the state to ensure everyone has a safe holiday.
