An estimated 400,000 drivers will call for roadside help this Thanksgiving weekend. A bit of pre-trip road care will help you avoid being one of them.
AAA released its annual Thanksgiving travel advisory yesterday. According to the auto club, “Nearly 48.3 million Americans will hit the road this Thanksgiving.”
That’s a lot of cars out there and, unfortunately, AAA also points out that some of those drivers “may travel in a vehicle that isn’t ready for an extended road trip.”
The result: “AAA estimates 400,000 Americans will need roadside assistance during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. The three most common issues are dead batteries, flat tires, and lock outs.
“‘Most vehicle problems like these could be prevented with a pre-trip vehicle inspection,’ said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. ‘Before you hit the road this Thanksgiving, make sure to check everything from the battery to the tires. That could make the difference between spending Thanksgiving at the table or on the roadside.'”
That’s great advice, not just for folks who plan on a road trip, but also for those who plan to stick around Wichita for local Thanksgiving events. After all, it’s equally unpleasant to be sitting at the side of a cold roadway waiting for a tow truck whether you’re miles from home or in your hometown. (At least if you’re at home, you might be able to get a friend or family member to come pick you up. But it’s still an experience that will spoil your Thanksgiving.)
