It’s the season of cheer, of folks traveling through the country to reach their loved ones and enjoy cherished family gatherings. Or heading to warmer locations for some fun and frolic! Look at the data: every year, the average number of people traveling long distances during Thanksgiving is 48.7 million!

Interestingly, the bulk of the travel is by car, which also means a rise in accident rates in this season. Note the statistics in this infographic, and remember – drive safe.
