Troopers placed every 20 miles on I-40 during holiday
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — The North Carolina Highway Patrol says it will station its troopers every 20 miles along Interstate 40 during the Thanksgiving holiday.
The move is part of a multi-state effort involving seven other states on the I-40 corridor for the holiday weekend.
Patrol commander Col. Glenn McNeill Jr. said the mission of the campaign is to reduce needless collisions in hopes of reporting no fatalities across the state.
The campaign starts on Wednesday and concludes on Sunday.
