In Pennsylvania, the days surrounding Thanksgiving are known as some of the most dangerous and deadly.
In 2020, Pre-Thanksgiving (the day before) had 1,279 crashes, Thanksgiving Day had 1,071 crashes and Black Friday (the day after) had 1,206 crashes.
According to the NHTSA, tens of millions of Americans will be on the roadways this Thanksgiving. It is more important than ever for drivers to plan ahead and practice safe driving.
Keep yourself and others safe on the roads this Thanksgiving by doing your part.
- Drive at a safe speed and expect traffic delays. Give yourself plenty of time to get to your destination.
- Wear safety belts and make sure children are in age and size appropriate car seats.
- Make sure your car is ready for the weather. Check tires, brakes and fluids.
- Never drink and drive. If you plan on having anything to drink, may sure you have a designated driver.
We hope you have a safe and happy Thanksgiving.
