CLINTON, Ind. (WTHI) - On Tuesday, the Indiana Criminal Justice Institue, Indiana State Police, and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration kicked off a statewide traffic enforcement blitz, focused on seat belts and impaired driving.

The increased patrols will last through the Thanksgiving travel holiday.

A while back, Andrews Heating and Air Conditioning teamed up with Indiana State Police and WTHI-TV to get the message out there to stay safe while traveling.

They sponsored several public service announcements giving stats on driving dangers.

That effort got the business some national attention.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute stopped by Clinton on Tuesday.

They recognized Andrews for spreading traffic safety in the area.

Clinton's mayor and several law enforcement officers were also there as she accepted the award.

Andrews says it's a top priority for her business to go beyond the norm to keep people safe.

"We need to make it a safer place, and if Andrews Heating and Air Conditioning can take that step and make that voice be heard, I challenge other businesses to do the same," Christine Andrews said.

The groups also recognized the Indiana State Police and WTHI-TV for taking part in the safety push.
