Holiday travel raises risk of being injured in a car accident

With the holiday season, Pennsylvania drivers will be doing a great deal of traveling. Since many people will be traveling by vehicle, this will inevitably raise the volume of vehicles on the road. Statistically, there will be close to 51 million people who travel a minimum of 50 miles for Thanksgiving alone. This is a rise of 3.3 percent from one year ago. In Pennsylvania, there will be a rise of 3.8 percent - 1.5 million people - who are traveling compared with one year ago. This might be associated with seeing family and friends for the holidays, but it is also linked to a rise in the number of car accidents that happen. These can lead to injuries and fatalities and should be thought about when going out on the road.
