Don’t Drink and Drive This Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving drinking

November 20, 2018 — Did you know that the night before Thanksgiving is considered one of the deadliest days to be on the road due to drunk drivers and holiday travel? Make sure that you’re a safe traveler this holiday season.

Never Drink and Drive

If you’re planning to go out the night before Thanksgiving, be sure to have a plan if you are drinking. Make sure to have a sober designated driver, or call an Uber, Lyft, or taxi service. We urge you not to drink and drive – we have seen firsthand the devastation it causes.

Be a Responsible Host

If you’re hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year, make sure none of your guests drive if they appear intoxicated. Additionally, Pennsylvania has a Social Host Law, meaning that if a minor leaves your home after drinking and causes an accident, you could be on the hook for any injuries or deaths occurring from their impaired driving.

Use Extra Caution on the Roads

Between Thanksgiving and Black Friday, this is one of the busiest traffic weeks of the year, so make sure to use extra caution while driving. Ensure your passengers are using seatbelts and that you’re abiding by all speed limits as you travel between your destinations.

Our firm wishes you and your families a very happy and safe Thanksgiving. Remember, please don’t drink and drive.
