How to Stay Safe on the Road When Traveling this Thanksgiving Holiday

Thanksgiving and Christmas are the busiest travel holidays in the United States, according to the U.S. Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS). With more travelers hitting the roads during these holidays, the risk for accidents increases. Here are a few tips for safe highway travel this holiday season:

Prepare for your trip by printing out maps and directions, or programming your GPS system in advance. Clean any snow and ice thoroughly off your car, so it doesn’t obstruct the driver’s vision. Make sure children’s car seats or booster seats are installed and fit correctly. Pack an emergency kit that includes food, water, a first aid kit, extra clothes, and blankets.

Check the weather before you hit the road so you can be prepared for snow, ice, or other conditions. Drive more slowly if the weather is snowy, icy, foggy, or rainy, and do not use cruise control in these conditions.

Take a break or switch drivers if you feel tired or sleepy. Avoid distraction by having passengers read directions or make phone calls for you. Never drive if you have been drinking, and use caution with prescription or over-the-counter medications until you are sure they will not make you sleepy.
