Thanksgiving Driving Safety:

Thanksgiving is usually one of the year’s deadliest weeks for traffic crashes. Between navigating unfamiliar roads, driving late at night or after having a few drinks, and the sheer fact that when traffic volume goes up, car crash numbers generally go up as well, it’s extremely important to drive safe and be careful over this long weekend (and throughout the entire holiday season). In fact, though many people believe that New Year’s Eve is the night when most drunk driving accidents occur, but they are wrong. Thanksgiving is the holiday that statistically has the largest number of drunk driving fatalities – and it’s by a landslide. For your safety, and the safety of your loved ones, be sure to:

  • Start out with a full tank of gas, check the tire air pressure and make sure the windshield fluid is full
  • Buckle up, slow down, don’t drive impaired. Designate a driver who won’t drink
  • Be well rested and stay alert
  • Use caution in work zones
  • Avoid distractions such as cell phones
  • Observe speed limits
  • Make frequent stops. During long trips, rotate drivers
  • Don’t follow another vehicle too closely
  • Clean the vehicle’s headlights, taillights, signal lights, and windows
  • If car trouble develops, pull off the road as far as possible
