The Arkansas City Police Department will join many other police agencies across the state, including the Kansas Highway Patrol, in the Kansas Thanksgiving Safe Arrival traffic enforcement campaign on Friday, Nov. 20, through Sunday, Nov. 29. The day before Thanksgiving sees more impairment-related crashes than any other day of the year. A grant from the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) will underwrite overtime traffic enforcement that specifically aims at removing impaired drivers from roadways and ticketing vehicle occupants who are improperly restrained or unrestrained, or whose children are unrestrained. On average across Kansas, three people are injured every day and someone is killed every four days in alcohol- or drug-related crashes – and the crashes tend to be more severe.
