Busy weekend ahead for Va. State Police

By The Associated Press

Virginia State Police will be out in force over the long Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

The agency says 75 percent of its uniformed work force will be on patrol from 12:01 a.m. Wednesday through midnight Sunday.

Troopers will again be participating in Operation Combined Accident Reduction Effort, a nationwide campaign designed to reduce crashes, fatalities and injuries caused by impaired driving, speeding and failure to buckle up.

Last year, 16 people died in traffic crashes during the five-day Thanksgiving holiday period.

When it comes to police harassing citizens, Virginia always takes the cake. Is it coincidence that they just raised speed limits to 70mph, but left the $1000 reckless driving ticket minimum at 81mph?
