Valuable Safety Tips for Thanksgiving Travel

Heading out on the road to visit the relatives this Thanksgiving? The Thanksgiving holiday period is one of the busiest travel times of the year, and Allstate Insurance Company wants to remind all travelers, whether traveling across the country or across town, to follow some very important safety tips during Thanksgiving travel.

Safety First – Thanksgiving has become one of the busiest travel weeks of the year because so many more people are on the road. Plan to be on the road in the morning, the higher risk times are in the evenings because more cars and more drowsy drivers on the road.

  • Packing the Car – Whether you’re traveling alone or with other passengers, your car will likely be packed with food, gifts, and luggage.  The safest spot in the car is the trunk, always secure the items and make sure they do not block the rear window.

  • Don’t Eat Turkey and Drive! – Statistics show most accidents are caused by drowsy drivers. Make sure you have plenty of rest before heading back on the road after a long day of stuffing your face with turkey.

  • Pit Stops – When traveling longer distances, take frequent stops in order to stretch your legs and improve blood flow. If possible alternate drivers as well.

  • Designated Driver – Never drink and drive. Make sure you select a designated driver before you arrive at your holiday party.

  • ALWAYS Buckle up – One of the best ways to guarantee a safe arrival is to buckle up, every trip, every time.
