Safety Tips for Traveling This Thanksgiving

Posted: November 20, 2015

The AAA Foundation estimates 46.9 million Americans will take to the road over the next several days to visit friends and family for Thanksgiving. With so many cars on the road, the legal staff at William Mattar Law Offices believes it’s important to keep safety in mind. Here are a few tips to consider as you prepare for your journey:

  • Perform vehicle maintenance– Over the past several months, millions of cars and trucks were recalled after they were found to be equipped with a number of defective parts. Be sure to have any problems that may be affecting your vehicle addressed, along with regular maintenance, prior to beginning your trip.
  • Keep an eye on the weather– Forecasts show weather patterns could deteriorate after the Thanksgiving holiday, bringing snow and rain into Western New York. It will be crucial to allow extra travel time for your return trip in case you encounter traffic. Keep these winter weather driving safety tips in mind if you find yourself driving in poor weather.
  • Don’t drink and drive– Collisions caused by intoxicated motorists tend to spike around holidays like Thanksgiving. You can do your part to prevent accidents by using a designated driver to get you home safely if you choose to drink alcohol during Thanksgiving festivities.
