Buckle Up – Every Trip. Every Time.

Thanksgiving weekend, millions will hit the roads, eager to spend time with family and friends. It’s one of the busiest travel times of the year, and unfortunately more people on the roadways means the potential for more vehicle crashes.

During the Thanksgiving holiday weekend in 2015 (6 pm on Wednesday, November 25, to 5:59 am on Monday, November 30), there were 301 passenger vehicle occupants killed in traffic crashes across the nation. Tragically, 50% of those killed were not buckled up at the time of their fatal crash.
