Florida authorities are girding for the onslaught of motorists that take to the roads for the Thanksgiving holiday. More than 2.1 million Ohioans are planning to travel between Wednesday November 22, 2017 and Sunday November 26, 2017.

The state police said their efforts are meant to prevent accidents in order to save lives and prevent injuries during the holidays and every day. In addition to the traffic crash investigations past year, troopers issued 10,652 citations and 15,207 warnings. "We don't want to knock on anyone's door this weekend and tell them someone they care about is not coming home because their loved one chose not to wear a seat belt".

In 2015, Florida tallied 9,906 crashes during the holiday period.
