Be Safe Heading To Grandma’s House For Thanksgiving
Forty-Eight Percent of Texans say they will be heading to Grandma's house for the Holiday.The vast majority of those traveling will be doing so by driving.. According to the Texas Department of Transportation, historically the busiest travel days will be Wednesday and Sunday as families hit the road to get to and from their destination.
Last year the department says there were 26 death and almost 900 injuries that occurred during the reporting period. They have some safety tips for you as you hit the road:
Buckle seat belts
put phones away while driving
left lane for passing only
never drink and drive
obey all traffic laws.
It's indeed a time to be thankful, and let's make it a safe trip to and back from grandma's house. I still remember years ago thinking that half of the city of Dallas must have been born in Arkansas. You could tell by all the eastbound traffic on Interstate 30 on the Tuesday and Wednesday before Thankgiving and all the westbound traffic on the same interstate come the Sunday after the holiday.
