BISMARCK - The day before Thanksgiving is one of the busiest holiday travel days and this year the North Dakota Highway Patrol is pulling out all the stops to foster safety with something called Operation HITS.


"HITS" stands for high-intensity traffic saturation, meaning all available sworn Highway Patrol personnel will be working the road.

"And that's from the colonel on down," said Sgt. Tom Iverson, a trooper who normally doesn't work patrol but will be on Wednesday.
