As we move into one of the busiest travel weekends of the year, the California Highway Patrol encourages travelers to buckle up, avoid driving distracted, obey posted speed limits and never drink and drive.

"Something as simple as buckling up before your trip can save your life and avoid turning a non-injury collision into a tragedy," said CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow in a news release.

Thanksgiving is a maximum enforcement period for the CHP. The Thanksgiving holiday reporting period begins today at 6 p.m. and runs through Sunday at midnight.

According to the CHP, 33 people died on California roadways due to a collision last Thanksgiving weekend. According to the report, 88 percent of those killed were not wearing a seat belt.
