Look out for this!

With the Thanksgiving Holiday coming up next week, many people will be traveling.

Thanksgiving is one of the busiest travel holidays of the year and the North Carolina Highway Patrol (NCHP) says it’s stepping up enforcement throughout the holiday weekend.

NCHP says troopers ‘will be in full force’ on the roads from Wednesday, Nov. 21 through Sunday, Nov. 25.


Troopers will be out every 20 miles along major interstates.


Highway Patrol recommends several tips to ensure safer driving in high-volume traffic:

  • Plan Ahead – Expect delays and plan to use alternate routes
  • Reduce Speed – Speeding is still the leading cause of traffic collisions
  • Increase Following Distances – A two-second lead time among vehicles is encouraged
  • Avoid Distracted Driving – Driver focus should be solely on driving
  • Never Drive Impaired – Plan ahead; designate a sober driver, us a taxi or contact a ride service
  • Lane Clearance – If involved in a collision without injury, remove vehicles to shoulder

If you see impaired or reckless driving, call *HP.
