Drive Safely This Thanksgiving

There’s plenty to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. Getting together with loved ones to indulge in turkey and stuffing is something most of us look forward to every year. Whether your favorite part of the holiday is watching the big parade, preparing the meal, or gobbling it up, we’re sure you’re anticipating a great get-together this year.

If you plan on driving this week or next, please be safe behind the wheel. Or, if you’re playing host this year, remind your guests to drive carefully on their way to you. Here are a couple things you can do to stay safe this year:

Eliminate Distractions

The government is cracking down on distracted driving, and for good reason. Did you know that texting takes your eyes off the road for 4.6 seconds? That’s like driving the length of a football field blindfolded!

Focusing on driving is one of the easiest ways to ramp up your safety. So make sure you avoid eating and drinking, talking on the phone, texting, and anything else that takes your hands off the wheel and your mind off the road.

Never Drink and Drive

Hey, there’s nothing wrong with enjoying a couple drinks. But if you plan on drinking during your Turkey Day festivities, please don’t get behind the wheel.

Thanksgiving is a great time to take a trip and get together with family and friends. With a couple simple steps, it’s easy to have a safe and fun holiday. The Right Lane team is thankful for all our readers. What are you thankful for this year?
