With fuel prices hovering around $1.70 a gallon, KSP expects increased traffic on the roadways this holiday.
Thanksgiving is the most dangerous holiday of the year for motorists, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
This includes the four-day holiday driving period surrounding that date when heavy traffic, weather and long-distance road trips combine to create severe travel conditions. Often, family celebrations include alcohol, which later evolves into impaired driving. Add that to heavy holiday traffic and you have a recipe for disaster.
