Thanksgiving is one of the busiest travel seasons of the year. The AAA is predicting close to 54.5 million people will be traveling for the holiday. Of those, nearly 49 million will travel by car. This time of year is also associated with higher drinking rates which makes it an especially dangerous time for motorists. To help with traffic safety, both the Vincennes Police Department and the Knox County Indiana Sheriffs Department will be ramping up enforcement as part of the Safe Family Travel campaign. Starting this week, officers with both departments will be out in greater numbers conducting saturation patrols designed to discourage impaired driving and promote the use of seat belts. The Safe Family Travel operations begin before Thanksgiving each year and run through New Years Day.
