California Saw A Decrease In Fatalities Over The Thanksgiving Holiday

While more motorists hit the roadways this Thanksgiving the state saw a decrease in the number of fatalities on the highways and the Mother Lode followed suit.  The Maximum Enforcement Period, which began last Wednesday (Nov. 21) at 6 p.m. and ended at midnight on Sunday showed deaths on the state’s highways decreased from 50 last year to 42 this year. Drunk driving was also down from 1057 last year to 931 this year. There were no fatalities in Amador or Calaveras County and just a hand full of DUI arrests. Both Counties reported a relatively quite holiday period.
