The Lawrence Police Department joins other police agencies across the state today in the weeklong Kansas Thanksgiving Traffic Enforcement Campaign.
The campaign — which runs through Sunday — will target impaired drivers, as well as those not wearing seat belts, according to a news release issued by Lawrence police.
The campaign is being funded by a grant from the Kansas Department of Transportation.
"The Lawrence Police Department reminds motorists to buckle up, designate a driver and do your part to help make the streets of Lawrence safer during the holiday season," said Lawrence Police Sgt. Trent McKinley in the release.
