Kentucky Office of Highway Safety reminds Thanksgiving travelers to buckle up

FRANKFORT, Ky. (November 20, 2013)  –
With Thanksgiving right around the corner, people will soon flock to the roads to visit and celebrate with family and friends. The Kentucky Office of Highway Safety (KOHS) reminds all travelers, whether they are heading across the country or across town, to ensure a safe arrival and a happy holiday by buckling up – “Every Trip, Every Time.”
 
“The risk of being involved in a serious or deadly car crash increases when the number of cars on the road increases,” Transportation Cabinet Secretary Mike Hancock said.  “The long Thanksgiving weekend is one of the busiest travel times of the year.”
 
During the Thanksgiving period last year in Kentucky, seven people were killed in motor vehicle crashes. Four of those killed were not wearing seat belts.
