Dangerous Time To Drive:

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is again warning drivers to stay safe on Thanksgiving. And for good reason — no holiday leads to more deadly accidents.

According to the most recent data available from NHTSA’s Fatality Analysis Reporting System, there were 764 crashes involving a fatality during Thanksgiving 2012. (About 400 of them involved motorists.) In comparison, there were 654 crashes involving a fatality during Christmas that year.

There were nearly 50,000 non-fatal car accidents that Thanksgiving holiday, too.

Our objective is to frankly remind New York Travelers this year that simple awareness & safety precautions can save your life. According to NHTSA, at least 40% of passengers killed that Thanksgiving were involved in crashes with drunk drivers, and about 60% of passengers weren’t wearing their safety belts.

Safety Precautions recommended bt the NHTSA:

  • Check your tires
  • Make sure your windshield wipers are working.
  • Don’t rush on the roads to make it to a holiday event. (check the weather, road conditions, and traffic)
  • Leave early, if necessary, and allow plenty of time to safely get to your destination.”
  • Never drink and drive.
  • Hands-free, no texting and driving.
  • Think Safe New York & Have A Happy Thanksgiving Holiday.
