Avoiding Thanksgiving Traffic Accidents

Nov 20, 2019

Thanksgiving is one of the busiest times of the year on the road. The shortness of the weekend creates a situation in which nearly everyone travels at the same time—the day before the holiday. Such a crush of drivers increases the risk of an accident. However, there are actions you can take to prevent involvement in a collision. If you do collide with another vehicle, the Levitsky Law Firm can help.

Tips to Avoid a Thanksgiving Traffic Accident

1. Travel on a different day

Wednesday is the big travel day for Thanksgiving. In fact, it is the busiest time of the year for every mode of travel—train, aircraft, and highway. Try to choose another day to make your journey home. It may be worth using an extra vacation day to avoid the Wednesday rush.

2. Explore alternate routes

The I-95 corridor will be busy and at some points congested. Even if you cannot completely avoid using this highway, you should explore ways of entering it at a point closer to home. Using this highway and other busy interstate corridors for the entire journey is likely to put you in more than one traffic jam.

3. Keep up to date on weather and traffic situation

You should read the weather forecast before you go. You should also know what the traffic situation is as you approach your destination. This can help you adjust your travel plans as necessary.
