The CHP is thankful for safe travels during the Thanksgiving maximum enforcement period

Monday, Nov. 22, 2014 — The extended Thanksgiving weekend is one of the busiest travel periods of the year. This raises the risk of a potentially serious or even deadly traffic collision. As families and friends gather for the holiday, the California Highway Patrol, along with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, wants to encourage travelers to always buckle up, avoid driving distracted, obey the posted speed limit and never drink and drive.

“Something as simple as buckling up before your trip can save your life and avoid turning a non- injury collision into a tragedy,” said CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow.

Thanksgiving is a maximum enforcement period for the CHP. The Thanksgiving holiday reporting period begins at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 26, and runs through 11:59 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 30. The Thanksgiving maximum enforcement period also coincides with National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s annual “Click It or Ticket” campaign.
