Thanksgiving is one of the highest-traffic holidays each year. This Thanksgiving weekend, November 23-27, millions will hit the roads, eager to spend time with friends and family. Being one of the busiest travel times of the year, that unfortunately means more people on the roadways, leading to the potential for more vehicle crashes. This Thanksgiving, there are two major campaigns focused around buckling up and not participating in impaired driving.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is reminding everyone that seat belts save lives and buzzed driving is drunk driving. They share some statistics below from previous Thanksgiving holiday weekends:
Let’s make this Thanksgiving different from years past and be conscious of the decisions we make before getting on the road. As you prepare for your trips this coming holiday, keep these additional tips from the NHTSA in mind:
MassDOT’s Highway Assistance Program sponsored by MAPFRE Insurance wants everyone to enjoy the holiday safely; the fleet is on patrol to help all motorists, including motorcyclists, on the highways. Patrol operators monitor some of the state’s busiest highways around Metro Boston, Worcester, Springfield and Cape Cod (seasonal). The Highway Assistance Patrol covers 13 major state roadways and interstates, the Emergency Service Patrol covers the Mass Pike (I-90) from New York to Boston and the Incident Response Operators cover the Metropolitan Highway System and tunnels. The Highway Assistance Patrol is in service Monday–Friday between the hours of 6 a.m.–10 a.m. and 3 p.m.–7 p.m. During holidays, there are extended routes in heavy traffic areas. On I-90, and in Boston’s tunnel system, assistance is provided 24 hours per day, 7 days a week.
