***ALERT*** T-Giving Wkend

Please, please, please be mindful if you plan on riding this coming weekend of this fact: According to NHTSA data, more people are killed in accidents on Thanksgiving weekend than in the New Year's Day weekend, and nearly half of the accidents involve drunk drivers. As someone who just rode 2,000mi I can say that being on mega alert is definitely in order. Before departure you might consider checking any issues relating to your route such as weather, announced DUI & Speed enforcement areas, any traffic/construction issues, etc. For National Traffic, Road Closure, and Weather Information listed by state click: HERE

Hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving!

Thank you, m'Lady for the warning. Would that I had the time off to ride. Instead, I'll be at work, in the ER & ICU, cleaning up after the stupid people and those they hurt.

Fourvalve, working the weekend could be safest way to go. I am sure the victims of foolishness will be grateful for your presence.

Yup, tonight is the busiest night of the year for bars. I always thought new years too but it ain't. Just ask anyone who works at a bar.

Speaking of the holiday weekend... I read somewhere that the most dangerous place on earth is on a two lane road, in the U.S., on a Saturday night. One out of ten drivers is legally drunk.
