Thanksgiving safety tips shared by the California Highway Patrol

Thanksgiving safety tips shared by the California Highway PatrolTop Safety Tip for Thanksgiving: Don’t Drink and Drive

Travelers should expect to see a larger presence of California Highway Patrol (CHP) cruisers to promote safety across state highways over the busy Thanksgiving holiday.

CHP officials anticipate increased travel and collisions and advise motorists to heed some safety tips to help them avoid collisions as they make their way to family gatherings.

The maximum enforcement period begins at 6 p.m. tonight and extends through 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 28th across California highways.

CHP officers will be patrolling highways for unsafe driving practices, seat belt violations, speeding, distracted driving, and signs of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Thanksgiving: One of the Busiest Travel Days of the Year

“When getting behind the wheel, make certain you and all your passengers buckle up before heading out, and remember to always avoid distractions,” according to a CHP statement.

Drivers may not be able to avoid a collision, but proper seat belt use has been proven to save lives.

All available CHP officers will be enforcing the law and ready to provide assistance to motorists.

A reminder to those traveling this holiday, last year in 2020 there were 33 people killed over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend on roadways within CHP jurisdiction. More than one third or 14 of the deaths were to people not wearing seat belts. Additionally, the CHP made 868 arrests for DUI involving alcohol and or drugs.

​Safety tips DPS offers for the Thanksgiving holiday include:

  • Never drink and drive
  • Don’t drive while drugged — both prescription or illegal drugs
  • Move Over, Slow Down for those who stop on the side of the road with emergency lights activated
  • Wear a seat belt
  • Slow down, especially for weather and construction
  • Share the road with large trucks. Don’t cut them off or brake suddenly in front of them
  • Make sure your vehicle is safe and properly maintained
  • Only use the left lane for passing on multi-lane roads
  • Don’t drive drowsy
  • Avoid distracted driving. Put down mobile devices
  • Avoid driving amid bad weather or poor road conditions

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat. Attorney James Johnson helps you be aggressive with the treatment, so the average case normally takes between two and five months. Those who have serious injuries and need surgery may take several months longer. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.

You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case. When the case is settled, our fee is a percentage, as previously agreed, of the final settlement. These fees are described in full detail in our signed contract before work begins on the case. We cover the case upfront costs including everything from copying and court filing fees to hiring experts - so all your focus can be on getting well.
