Tips to stay safe during Thanksgiving travel

While there are several laws on the books to help encourage safe driving and prevent accidents, there are still many people who are getting into serious motor vehicle accidents and suffering because of them. In New York City alone, the year 2014 brought over 66,000 motor vehicle crashes. More than 45,000 were injured in these crashes, and 239 people were killed. There are various contributing factors to crashes, such as the use of alcohol, distracted driving, fatigued driving, driving in the dark and weather related issues. One of the times when all of these factors may be at play is during the holidays, which starts with Thanksgiving.
