PHOENIX (AP) - Police and highway patrol agencies in eight states spanning the country plan stepped-up patrols along Interstate 40 over the Thanksgiving travel period to reduce collisions and prevent fatalities.

States participating in the “Drive Toward Zero Fatalities” include California, Arizona, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, Tennessee and North Carolina.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety says its effort includes increasing patrols along I-40 during busy 12-hour periods on Wednesday and Sunday.

The department also says Arizona troopers will focus on violations related to seatbelt usage, speed, impairment and overall dangerous driving behaviors.
