People traveling on Interstate 5 for Thanksgiving should expect to see more law-enforcement officers this holiday weekend.
Three state police agencies from Washington, Oregon and California are issuing a challenge to commuters: Arrive alive on I-5 this holiday weekend, according to a news release from the Washington State Patrol.
The tri-state campaign means that Wednesday through Sunday, state law enforcement from San Diego north to Bellingham will be targeting education and enforcement efforts on the road, according to the news release.
The agencies will specifically focus on collision-causing violations known to be factors in fatal collisions, such as speed; aggressive, distracted and impaired driving; as well as failure to wear a seat belt.
State patrol advises holiday travelers to slow down, have patience, drive sober and buckle up.
