Traffic patrols increasing through weekend

November 21, 2011

The Tonganoxie Police Department, along with many other law enforcement agencies across the state, including the Kansas Highway Patrol, will be participating in the Kansas Thanksgiving Traffic Enforcement Campaign from Monday, Nov. 21, through Sunday, Nov. 27.

A grant through the Kansas Department of Transportation will underwrite overtime traffic enforcement, especially targeted at impaired drivers and vehicle occupants who are not properly restrained.

The Thanksgiving holiday weekend (Wednesday through Sunday) commonly outranks all other holidays in its number of alcohol-related crashes.
