Thanksgiving Road Travel Tips

If you’re among the 39 million people hitting the road for Thanksgiving this year, here are some travel tips to keep in mind while you’re on the road.

Thanksgiving Road Travel Tips

  1. Plan ahead – Make sure you know where you’re going and how to get there. GPS systems are a great way to ensure you’ll get where you want to go. If you don’t have a GPS, you can use your smartphone for directions, but it’s a good idea to print directions just in case the battery dies. Having a map in the glove compartment is also a smart idea.
  2. Consider the weather – With winter storm Boreas making its way across the country, it’s a good idea to take the weather into consideration when planning your trip. If conditions look like they might be unsafe, consider leaving earlier or later, an alternate route, or if necessary, staying home.
  3. Get the car ready – You never know when a tire’s going to go flat or the engine won’t start. Make sure you’ve got the essentials such as a tire repair kit, jumper cables and flashlight.
  4. Drive Safety – With the increased volume of traffic on the roads for Thanksgiving travel, drivers are bound to be a little more on edge. Make sure to keep an eye out for aggressive drivers. Also, avoid distracted driving practices like talking on the phone or texting. Hand the phone to a spouse or family member if you really need to take the call.
