Northern Arizona — During the heavily traveled Thanksgiving holiday, troopers will be participating in the nationwide I-40 challenge, “Drive to Zero Fatalities”. The I-40 challenge will be held November 22nd and 26th during the peak holiday travel times, in response to the anticipated increased amount of traffic.
The I-40 challenge includes the following states along its 2,555 mile stretch of road: California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee, and North Carolina. Troopers will be enforcing traffic laws as well as providing assistance to the motoring public.
During the two-day operation in 2016, AZDPS troopers wrote 275 citations with a total of 512 moving violations and 488 non-moving violations, investigated 19 collisions, and inspected 39 commercial vehicles.
“The Interstate 40 challenge is a collaborative effort to reduce traffic collisions during the main travel days of the Thanksgiving holiday,” said Major John Philpot, Northern Region Commander for the Arizona Department of Public Safety.
The challenge was adopted by AZDPS years ago after the Tennessee Highway Patrol was successful in reducing collisions and raising public safety awareness along their stretch of I-40.

The Single Guy Blog
Well it has been a while since I posted. I guess after finding out my dream girl was having a baby by another guy I just wasn’t in the mood to post. But I’m back folks! So I have a new dream girl. It is a bit of a long story so sit back,pour a cup of coffee and relax. So I have been stalking the Facebook page of the bar I use to work at-ya know how a single guys does when he has no life. I saw some pictures of a beautiful girl that bartends there. Blond hair,beautiful smile…just perfect. Of course I figured I would never have a chance with her-specially since she is about 20 years younger. But a guy can dream right? So a couple days ago I was looking around seekingarrangements to see if anyone new had signed up and who do I see? Yep that girl! We will call her…Tanya…So I figured hey send her a message who knows what might happen. She sent me a message back and we sent a few more messages back and forth. I gave her my number and SURPRISE she sends me a text! So we have been talking for a couple days now. She even says she likes older guys and not the young military guys that come into the bar where she works. We are planning on meeting this week. So we will see what happens…I have my fingers crossed and won’t be surprised if she disappears before we actually meet….but I might just actually have found my future wife-or she may just “ghost” on me like so many flakey girls do. Stay tuned..maybe the Single Guy won’t be single much longer!
