Travel Tips for a Safer Thanksgiving Weekend

Thanksgiving is one of the biggest travel weekends of the year. Between visiting friends and family and heading out to shop for Black Friday deals, you’ll want to make sure you take a few safety precautions before hitting the road. Here are a few tips to help improve your Thanksgiving weekend travel safety.

Thanksgiving Weekend Travel Safety Tips:

  • Check Your Car – Check your car before you hit the road. Make sure that your headlights, windshield wipers, brakes, etc., are all in good working condition. Start out with a car full of gas and check your tire pressure to make sure that your car is ready for an extended road trip.
  • Make Frequent Stops – If you’re traveling a long way to visit family for Thanksgiving, be sure to stop frequently. If you’re feeling tired, switch drivers.
  • Give Your Full Attention to the Road – For those traveling with a car full of kids, we know how difficult it can be to zone out distractions. Keep your eyes on the road and stay alert.
  • Make Sure You’re Well Rested – We know that it’s tempting to head out at midnight for those Black Friday deals, but you’ll want to make sure that you’re well rested and alert.
