Troopers To Be Out In Full Force This Holiday Weekend

Thanksgiving is ordinarily one of the most hectic travel periods of the year, and state troopers are urging motorists to remain safety-minded as they travel throughout the state.

Thanksgiving travel and troopers go hand in hand. Five of the people killed and 14 of those seriously injured involved a substance-impaired driver.

-Use public transportation, a taxi, ride sharing service, or your community's sober ride program to get home safely. In addition, statistics show that 79 percent of people ejected in a crash die; 30 percent of unbelted motorists are ejected during a crash.

Troopers will increase patrols from 11 a.m.to 11 p.m. Sunday along I-40, the patrol reports.

"Thanksgiving is usually one of the year's deadliest weeks for traffic crashes, and during Thanksgiving weekend as well", said Gary Poedubicky, acting director of the New Jersey Division of Highway Traffic Safety.

State police will have increased enforcement from tomorrow (Wednesday) through Sunday.

"Now we ask drivers to do their part in keeping our roadways safe during this holiday period". Ten fatal crashes took 12 lives over the same period in 2015. Excessive speed, driving drunk or under the influence of drugs and not wearing seat belts pose a danger to your life. They are also encouraging folks to call for another form of transportation if they're planning on drinking and to avoid texting in the front seat. Halford said distracted driving could be anything from changing the radio, to talking on the phone or paying more attention to a passenger than the road.

Georgia highway safety leaders parked Deputy Lamar Bowen's patrol vehicle near Signature Flight Support on Tuesday for a visual demonstration of a rollover crash.

Angle said troopers will have zero tolerance towards those not wearing seat belts.
