The C.H.P says its statewide maximum enforcement period will run through Sunday night. The patrol's Fran Clader says officers will be looking for people who are driving under the influence.
"Last year during the Thanksgiving holiday, we made more than 15-hundred arrests for driving under the influence. That was a nearly six percent increase from the same time the previous year…"
The C.H.P. says 21 people were killed in collisions during last year's Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
Officers will also be watching to make sure people are buckled up and that children are secured in child seats.
