Thanksgiving in Michigan may be all about family, but Thanksgiving Eve is often about drinking. For people all across the state gather together with out-of-town friends and families and catch up over cocktails. Before one drink turns into several, make sure you have a plan to get a Safe Ride Home this Wednesday.
Thanksgiving is one of the busiest travel times of the year. According to a Waze study of 2014 travel patterns, the Wednesday through Sunday around Thanksgiving sees a substantial increase in highway congestion and traffic accidents. On Wednesday, Thanksgiving Eve, traffic increases starting at 11:00 and stays high throughout the day. That translated into a 62.9% increase in accidents.
In spite of the heavy traffic, many Michigan residents and guests often use Thanksgiving Eve to get together with family and friends over drinks. But if you don’t have a designated driver, that decision can translate into a DUI or a drunk driving accident that will ruin your holiday.
