We at Tramontozzi Law  wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving Holiday.  As you travel,  Don’t be a turkey; Drive safe!

Thanksgiving is the most traveled holiday of the year. This year will be busier than most. It is also one of the deadliest. Thanksgiving Eve is one of the busiest nights of the year for many bars and restaurants. In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, between 2012 and 2016, 800 people died in alcohol-impaired accidents during Thanksgiving weekend. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety,  fifty (50) more people die in traffic crashes during Thanksgiving week than during any other week of the year. With this in mind, if you are travelling on the roadways, drive safe this weekend!  It can save a life
