Connecticut State Police plans to supplement their normal routine patrol personnel with additional troopers over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Troopers will patrol all roads and highways across Connecticut and will focus on drunk drivers and target aggressive and unsafe drivers.
In a press release, state police said Thanksgiving eve and day are without any doubt the busiest traffic days of the year.
Troopers will man sobriety checkpoints and roving DUI patrols will also be set up to target DUI problem areas across the state throughout the entire weekend. Some of the targeted roads include Interstate 95 and Route 15.
Uniformed Troopers will use non-traditional patrol cars to observe traffic and issue tickets to reckless distracted drivers. A reminder to all drivers, that anyone who is consuming alcohol should never get behind the wheel.
“Your Connecticut State Troopers will work very hard to keep our Connecticut roads and highways safe. Help us reduce accidents, drive with extra caution this Thanksgiving holiday,” said Colonel Danny Stebbins. “As we do our part through enforcement, please do your part by driving safely”.
