Whether traveling or hosting a huge gathering at home, Thanksgiving should be celebrated with safety in mind. The Thanksgiving holiday means family, friends, food, and fun. However, winter weather, busy traffic, alcohol consumption, and kitchen chaos can result in accidents that dampen the celebrations. These accidents can be avoided with just a bit of extra caution. Here are some tips to make the holiday safer and ensure everyone has a great time.
The risk of auto accidents increases with millions of people crowding the highways and byways during the Thanksgiving Holiday weekend. Those who’ll be driving should have their vehicles inspected, serviced, and cleaned before the trip. They should also remember to drive defensively, be aware of the weather and road conditions, observe the speed limits, allow for more time to reach their destination, and avoid distracted, drowsy, or impaired driving.
