Just for fun I typed in "Deadliest Travel Day of the year" on Google and these were the first 3 websites:
"July Fourth Traffic and the Deadliest Travel Day on the Highway"
"Thanksgiving is Deadliest Travel Day : Insurance Resources"
"Christmas Day is Deadliest of the Year, Says 26-Year Study"
Of course everyone should be careful, any time there are a number of people on the road and alcohol is consumed its a dangerous time.
We are getting hit by a big snowfall right now. Travel in this area is hazardous right now.
lots of ice and car accidents today, 3 people killed already
