The best way to honor Drive Safer Sunday is to drive safely

The Senate, in an attempt to make the Sunday after Thanksgiving safer for the extra multitudes of drivers taking to the road to go home, has declared that day as Drive Safer Sunday. With the notoriously heavy traffic on that day it’s important to drive safer, use your turn signals, follow the speed limit, leave plenty of room to stop. These and other safety tips can take the aggravation out of your trip home.

Key Takeaways:

  • The Sunday after Thanksgiving has been designated as Drive Safer Sunday. It is a notoriously busy day of traffic, which makes it equally notorious for flaring tempers and aggressive driving.
  • Drive Safer Sunday is a reminder to motorists to drive safely, which means obey the traffic laws, don’t try to make up time, and drive sober.
  • Make safety a priority. Be aware of the other drivers and their vehicles. Be courteous and be prepared for those who don’t drive safely.
