Thanksgiving: One of the Deadliest Days to Be on the Road This Year
Countless Americans look forward to Thanksgiving every November as one of the happiest days of the year. While endless families across the nation are enjoying an evening with their family, eating turkey, and gearing up for the rest of the holiday season, others are suffering at the hands of reckless drivers on the road. As with any other holiday, accidents and injuries run rampant every year on Thanksgiving.
The truth of the matter is, holidays pose a unique risk to all on the road. Not only is there an influx of traffic due to the fact that everyone is heading to a destination on or around the same day. This means, millions of Americans are fatally injured every year for a number of reasons. Many people are driving in unfamiliar areas, which means they are more likely to be distracted by their phone, texts, phone calls, or GPS navigation systems. Also, the large influx of drivers means there is an increase in traffic, creating high-stress situations and opportunities for reckless driving. Lastly, many people continue to get behind the wheel even after they’ve had a few drinks, as drunk driving accidents spike in particular on Thanksgiving weekend.
Overall, our Lexington personal injury attorneys of Goeing, Goeing & McQuinn PLLC want to advise anyone out on the road during Thanksgiving weekend to be as safe as ever. Keep an eye out for dangerous drivers, and make sure you are not one yourself--so you can enjoy this beautiful holiday with peace of mind.
