  • OHP to participate in I-40 Challenge during Thanksgiving holiday

Troopers will step up patrols on I-40 on the two biggest travel days of this holiday - Wednesday and Sunday.

The extra patrols will start at 6 p.m. and will last until Sunday at midnight.

According to AAA, almost 51 million Americans will travel at least 50 miles or more away from their home for the holiday, with 2.6 million Floridians among the travelers.

During the 5 day Thanksgiving holiday past year, Georgia Department of Transportation says there were 5,011 traffic accidents.

Last year, there were 171 crashes reported during the Thanksgiving travel period. Spokesperson Johnny Poulos says those who plan to drink should have a designated driver behind the wheel. "Troopers will also be looking for violators who cause accidents on CT roads and highways". During last year's holiday period, 292 arrests were made for driving under the influence.

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.

"We're working with other states across the nation to bring awareness to the number of crashes states are experiencing and we just want to lower those numbers", said Poulos.

The Thanksgiving holiday period is also an Operation Combined Accident Reduction Effort holiday, where state law enforcement officers across the country join together for a concerted effort to encourage safe travel.
