The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is currently publicizing their annual Thanksgiving safety campaign. Their “Make It To The Table” campaign is aimed at raising awareness about the dangers associated with drinking and driving. Traditionally, Thanksgiving eve has been known for an increase in injury causing and fatal crashes involving drunk drivers. According to the NHTSA, Thanksgiving is the deadliest holiday on U.S. roadways. This year, they’re reminding motorists that even one empty seat at the table is one too many.
