As the holiday season approaches, Werner Enterprises would like to remind our Professional Drivers to practice safety in the midst of increased travel. A statistic from AAA estimates 90 percent of travelers or 39.1 million people plan to travel by automobile this Thanksgiving.
According to AAA, 43.6 million Americans are projected to journey 50 miles or more from home during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. These travelers will impact the roads making a challenging job even more so for our Drivers. Traffic will be heavier and congested.
Whether you are traveling home for the holiday or staying out to work, be sure you are alert, focused and dedicated to keeping the roads safe this weekend and always. Use safe and sound driving practices so you can deliver your loads as needed and most importantly make it home safely.
