Thanksgiving Travel Tips from Freedom Honda

November 23rd, 2016 by

Happy (almost) Thanksgiving Freedom Honda fans! We don’t know about you, but we are so excited to spend time with our family and friends over the next few days. If you’re like most Americans, you’re probably hitting the road to see loved ones this holiday season. Thanksgiving is one of the busiest times to be on the road, and we want you to be safe. Here are some suggestions to stay safe driving to your Thanksgiving celebration.

Be aware of the weather and how it can change. We all know how unpredictable the weather can be here in Colorado. If you’re planning on driving to your Thanksgiving celebration, be sure to look at the weather forecast for all of the areas you’ll be traveling through so you know what you can expect along the road.

Give yourself plenty of time to reach your destination. The roads on Thanksgiving are going to be jam-packed full of people on their way to their Thanksgiving dinner. The extra traffic is going to be stressful enough as it is – make sure you don’t have the added pressure of running late wearing on your nerves. Leave with plenty of time to reach your destination SAFELY. If you encounter traffic, remain calm and enjoy the journey.

Pack like your next meal depends on it.  If your Thanksgiving celebrations are anything like ours, you’re most likely going to be taking leftovers home. If you have a car full of people, it can be difficult to find a place to put all those tasty treats. When leaving for your destination, make sure you already have a place set aside in your vehicle to keep food securely in place. If you’re expecting to bring a lot of food home, pack a cooler in your trunk. You can thank us later when you’re enjoying your grandmother’s pie over the weekend.

Make sure you make it home to see your family. No matter what time of the year it is, it is important to always stay safe on the road.  Be mindful next time you get behind the wheel, and if you are ready to get behind the wheel of a new Honda, come see us here at Freedom Honda! We have many great sales happening all weekend long, and with a Honda for every budget, we can help you find your dream car. Stop by and see how we can assist you!
