CALIFORNIA - The CHP is preparing for one of the busiest travel weekends of the year, as drivers hit the road for Thanksgiving.

To help motorists arrive at their destinations safely, the CHP will implement a Maximum Enforcement Period and deploy all available officers through the holiday weekend, the CHP said. 

A maximum enforcement period is going into effect Wednesday at 6 p.m. and will last until midnight on Sunday.

During the maximum enforcement, the CHP said officers will educate motorists and enforce traffic safety laws throughout the state to ensure everyone has a safe holiday.

Officers said they will be actively looking for unsafe driving practices, including impaired or distracted driving, unsafe speed, and vehicle occupants who fail to buckle up.

A welcome cooling trend is ahead through Friday, but dry, warmer and windy conditions will bring elevated fire danger this weekend.
