Thanksgiving Travel On I-40

11.22.06. Expect plenty of blue lights along to the road to grandmother's house this Thanksgiving, at least if you're traveling on Interstate-40.

State police from California to Texas to North Carolina will do their best to have troopers posted along every ten miles of Interstate 40.

Troopers from all eight states along the more than 2500 miles east-west corridor will participate in an effort called I-40 Care Across America.

It's intended to reduce the number of fatalities during the
busiest travel period.

The states participating are California, Arizona, New Mexico,
Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee and North Carolina.

The operation begins Wednesday afternoon and ends early
Thursday.
