How to Prevent a Car Accident in Georgia this Thanksgiving

By Grant Law Office on November 22, 2012

Thanksgiving Driver SafetyEvery Thanksgiving holiday period, there is an increase in traffic accidents and fatalities. According to the Georgia State Patrol, there were 437 traffic crashes that occurred during 2010 Thanksgiving holiday resulting in 397 injuries and eight fatalities. Officials say that the leading causes of fatal Thanksgiving accidents are impaired drivers, speeding motorists, and a lack of safety belt use. If you are driving this holiday week, it is important that you exercise due care and take the necessary steps in order to avoid getting into an accident.

The first step to take to prevent a Georgia traffic accident is to make sure that you are driving safely. While driving this holiday season, it is important that drivers adhere to posted speed limits and drive at a speed that is safe given the traffic, roadway, and weather conditions.

Slow down when there is traffic congestion or where you find slippery conditions. It is also crucial that you do not drive while intoxicated and that you don’t drive distracted.

In addition, it is also important that you do not drive while fatigued. If you are feeling sleepy after Thanksgiving dinner, you probably shouldn’t get behind the wheel. Instead, take time to digest the food, take a nap, or drink coffee. Fatigued driving can be as dangerous as drunk driving. If you do have to drive after a long day of festivities, have a front seat passenger keep you company during the trip.
