In a press release from the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles, John Saunders, director of DMV’s Virginia Highway Safety Office says

“Although we’re seeing a drop in roadway deaths, drivers still need to be vigilant, especially with the Thanksgiving holiday approaching. Thanksgiving is traditionally one of the deadliest times of the year on our highways. To reduce needless crashes and deaths, we urge motorists to slow down and allow additional time to get to their destinations.”
