Thanksgiving is a holiday to celebrate with friends and family that serves as a reminder of what we are thankful for this year. With that said, there will be millions of Americans hitting the roads this week to be with their loved ones. This means the streets and highways will be crowded, so you should make an effort to plan in advance how to safely make the most of this holiday season.
Avoid Drunk Drivers
Many of us have the Thanksgiving holiday off from work to spend with loved ones and friends. Because of this, some people may choose to spend their free time consuming cocktails with friends and co workers, leading to more drunk drivers on the road during this Thanksgiving holiday. Making sure to avoid crowded bar and nightlife areas, which can limit your chances of encountering a drunk driver.
Travelling on Thanksgiving is all about timing. No matter if you are making the long haul back to your hometown or are just going down the street to grandma’s house, it is important to be realistic about timing. Normally traffic free roads will be congested with cars trying to get to their holiday destination, so give yourself enough time to get to your final stop safely. Moreover, if you are tired, stop and take a rest break. Auto accidents are much more likely to occur when you are tired and easily distracted.
