Thanksgiving Weekend Becoming More and More Dangerous for Drivers

Thanksgiving weekend is consistently one of the biggest travel events of the year. However, with the increase in drivers on the road, Thanksgiving also proves to be one of the most unsafe weekends for drivers. Forbes.com released an estimate that more than 48.5 million drivers will take to the road between this Thursday and Sunday, a 2.5 million increase over 2017. Unfortunately, this creates more opportunities for distracted and unsafe driving.

If you’re driving this weekend, it’s important to exercise defensive driving techniques to help avoid crashes, like being aware of your surroundings, keeping proper distance between you and the car in front of you, and keeping your speed down. You should also practice general safe driving by not texting, drinking, eating, or applying makeup while driving. These acts take your attention off the road, making you more likely to cause a crash. For more information on distracted driving, please see our blog post on the subject.

If you do happen to be involved in a car accident, you should contact a personal injury attorney immediately. Your attorney will be able to investigate and find out if the at-fault driver was drunk or distracted. Insurance companies are more likely to accept responsibility and properly compensate you if the at-fault driver was overly negligent. Contact the Law Offices of Mathys & Schneid to schedule a free consultation and discuss your recovery options.

By practicing safe driving techniques, you’ll help keep the roads safe and make sure that everyone has a happy holiday season.

The Law Offices of Mathys & Schneid continues to handle all types of car, motorcycle and truck accident cases along with wrongful death and other personal injury cases throughout the Chicagoland area.
