Called Operation CARE – that stands for Combined Accident Reduction Effort – state police join forces with local departments to put extra patrol cars on the roads. This year they started on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving and ended on Sunday.
While some might see the extra police presence as a bad thing, it is important to remember that Operation CARE is designed to prevent accidents during the most dangerous times of the year to be on the road. Extremely high volumes of traffic, higher numbers of drunk drivers, and higher rates of stressed and tired drivers means a greater potential for serious Virginia car accidents and injuries. More police on the roads will simply save lives and prevent accidents.
