The days before, during, and directly after Thanksgiving Day are some of the busiest for travel in the US. More traffic means more stress, more accidents, and a much higher police presence.
Thanksgiving Day has earned the title “Deadliest Day of the Year” due to the high number of fatal car accidents. Many of these accidents are alcohol related. People have time off of work to celebrate, spend time with family and friends, watch football, and drink alcohol. With this in mind, law enforcement is always on the prowl for intoxicated drivers. Be aware of how much you have been drinking or don't drink at all. As always, the best way to avoid a DUI is to never get behind the wheel.
Happy thanksgiving to everyone - I hope your holiday is filled with love and joy. Have a drink (if you partake) - in fact, have two - just make sure to call a cab after! Don't risk your life and the lives of others by drinking and driving.
