Thanksgiving is a super-deadly time on NJ roads

  • Thanksgiving is a super-deadly time on NJ roads

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.

And while traffic may be busy along the I-95 corridor, as it has been historically at this time of year, the Virginia Department of Transportation is trying to make life a little easier.

Beginning today, troopers across the state will conduct high-visibility enforcement focusing on impaired driving, seat belt use, careless driving and speeding.

"We can get disabled motorists of the side of the road, which is a lot safer for the public", Mann said.

"Anytime you got more cars on the road, that's just more chance for a crash to occur", said Richardson.




Missouri State Highway Patrol Capt. Juan Villanueva, commanding officer of Troop D, Springfield, recently announced Troop D officers will be participating in enforcement operations throughout the Thanksgiving Day weekend.

The challenge has NC, Tennessee, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California placing troopers at least every 20 miles on I-40 from Wednesday to Sunday during the most heavily-traveled periods. Last year, there were no fatal accidents along I-40 in the state during the two-day campaign.

Georgia highway safety leaders parked Deputy Lamar Bowen's patrol auto near Signature Flight Support on Tuesday for a visual demonstration of a rollover crash. Troopers want to reduce that number to zero this year. The tips include planning ahead, limiting distractions, wearing seatbelts, obeying speed limits, finding a safe way home after drinking alcohol and checking for traffic updates.

You're also going to think you see more troopers, but Turnipseed says it just appears that way because all of the troopers are concentrated in specific areas.
