As you may be aware, Thanksgiving Day is one of the most dangerous days of the year to be on the road. As the holiday is fast approaching, it is a good time to remind others to take care as they plan their Thanksgiving holiday travel. According to USA Today, “During each Thanksgiving week from 2005-2010, the average number of traffic fatalities nationwide was 798; for all other weeks, the average was 748, according to a new University of Alabama analysis of federal data on road deaths.” Additionally, car crashes, in general, tend to rise to about 25% above the average on Thanksgiving as compared to other days during the year.
Car accidents are a very real danger when driving, no matter on the highway or on a secluded country road. The physical and psychological damage caused by car accidents can be extensive and result in years of medical and professional care.
