Thanksgiving Travel – What to do if You’re in an Accident

Posted on October 29, 2019

As the Thanksgiving holiday approaches, millions of families begin travel preparations to visit friends and family across the country.  In fact, the Wednesday before Thanksgiving is considered the busiest travel days of the year in the United States.  Over 4 million people will fly, another 1.5 million will travel by train, bus, or ship, and nearly 50 million Americans will hit the road.      The increase in traffic on the roadways combined with potential bad weather in the northern half of the country results in a higher probability of traffic accidents.  Statistics show that there is an even higher risk of accidents between Wednesday night and Thursday morning, likely linked to distracted driving, drunk driving, and speeding.   If you are traveling this holiday season, follow these important tips to stay safe: • Use your seatbelt and ensure all passengers buckle up • Never drink and drive  • Avoid distractions by turning off your cellphone and storing it in the glove compartment • Be patient, alert and pay extra attention to other drivers who may be impaired.  If you see someone swerving, stay away!  Ask a passenger in your vehicle to write down the driver’s license number and contact the police. • Don’t rush.  Leave early and get to your destination safely.
