If you haven’t been on the roads leading up to Thanksgiving, traffic can be hectic. Thanksgiving is one of the busy travel days of the year. According to ccn.com roughly 43.4 million Americans will travel this Thanksgiving; a number that is slightly down from last year.
While that number may be down, that still a lot of people on the roads and in the air. We’re here to give you pointers to stay safe and have a great time with loved ones. Check out our top 5 driving tips.
Make sure you hit the road early. Speeding and hurried driving can distract you from the road, by placing more focus on the clock and where you need to be.
Plan your route in advance. Know where you’re going and how you plan on getting there. This will help you avoid looking too hard for signs and at your GPS. If you’re going to use a GPS mount it on your dash, so your eyes don’t have to travel far from the road.
Be mindful of the weather. It’s late November everyone. Snow, rain, ice, sleet, anything can happen. Check the weather before you leave and see what you’re driving into.
Try to travel before Wednesday. Because the holiday falls on a Thursday, many people leave Wednesday making it the biggest travel day. With traffic from those who have to work on Wednesday mixed with those traveling the road can get congested quickly.
