Safety First During the Upcoming Holiday
Some people travel hundreds of miles to enjoy Thanksgiving with family and friends. However, celebrating the holiday is the last thing anyone wants to do if a loved one is involved in a traffic accident. Secretary of Law Enforcement, Stan Stabler says last year Alabama State Troopers investigated 10 traffic fatalities during the 5 day Thanksgiving weekend. The holiday travel period for Thanksgiving is from Wednesday to Sunday. The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency is partnering with other agencies across the state to encourage everyone to buckle up, obey speed limits and avoid driving while under the influence.
