State Patrol Warns Holiday Travelers To Observe Traffic Laws

State Patrol Warns Holiday Travelers To Observe Traffic Laws

Illinois State Police troopers have stepped up patrols just in time for the holiday.

If you're heading out the door to get on the road this Thanksgiving holiday, you might want to know when is the most unsafe time to drive in Florida.

"Today we're trying to do our traveling, all the little last minute details, spend some quality time with my aunt and my daughters". If you or anyone in your vehicle is not wearing their seat belt, they are at a much greater risk of being killed. "Make the plan of how you're going to get home an important part of that event".

MSHP's counting period for 2017 Thanksgiving holiday weekend runs from 6 p.m. Wednesday to 11:59 p.m. Sunday.

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

"The Florida Highway Patrol remains committed to keeping Florida's highways safe and ensuring motorists and their families Arrive Alive this holiday season", said Colonel Gene S. Spaulding, Director of the Florida Highway Patrol.

Last year, there were 171 crashes reported during the Thanksgiving travel 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. Troopers want to reduce that number to zero this year.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol's Troop H will have extra troopers on the roadway through the whole weekend, but there will be officers on Interstate 35 every 20 miles on Wednesday as well as Sunday.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol has this advice for travelers. Excessive speed, driving drunk or under the influence of drugs and not wearing seat belts pose a danger to your life.

Troopers, in unmarked cars, will be looking for drivers distracted by cellphones on interstates and main highways across the state this week.
