    Those traveling during Thanksgiving are asked to remain extra cautious while on the roadways in order to make everybody’s holidays happy and safe. There may be increased traffic or higher chances of drunk drivers on the roadway this time of year. Many local officers will be working hard to keep their eye on any holiday drivers and keep the roads safe. They want to make sure drivers are responsible while they attend holiday parties. By tracking any dangerous drivers, officers in Texas have been able to help keep the road free of unsafe drivers. During last year’s Thanksgiving weekend, troopers arrested 386 people for driving while under the influence, 7,500 speeding citations were issued, 875 for no insurance, and over 770 for seat belt and child safety seat citations. 258 fugitives and 211 felony arrests were also made during the holidays. During this season, officers urge using a designated driving or a cab service. Don’t use a phone while behind the wheel and always use a seat belt. Drive more slowly because there may be slick, icy areas or heavier traffic. Always move over for emergency vehicles stopped on the side of the road. Stay defensive while behind the wheel and be sure the car you’re driving is maintained properly before driving, according to news reports.
