In anticipation of increased traffic during the Thanksgiving holiday, the Ohio State Highway Patrol is reminding drivers of the dangers of driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.

Last year during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, 12 people were killed in nine fatal crashes on Ohio’s roadways.

Seven of the 12 fatalities, 58 percent, were the result of an impaired driver. That is why troopers will be out in full force this weekend, looking for and removing these dangerous driver’s from our roadways.

AAA predicts 43.4 million Americans will travel at least 50 miles from home over the holiday, a decrease of 1.5 percent from last year.

The Patrol expects traffic to increase Wednesday afternoon and is urging motorists to contribute to roadway safety by planning ahead for increased drive time and making safety their first priority.

“We all share the responsibility of contributing to a safe holiday on Ohio roadways by obeying all traffic laws and never driving impaired,” Colonel Paul A. Pride, Patrol superintendent, said.

“As a member of the motoring public, you can help save lives by reporting unsafe and aggressive drivers to law enforcement.” Troopers recommend that motorists contact the Patrol by calling #677 to report drug activity or impaired drivers.
