BRAZOS VALLEY, Texas - It's almost turkey time and travel plans are being carved out. So in the spirit of Thanksgiving sharing, here are a few tips to prevent any holiday travel mishaps.
Make sure your vehicle is up to date on all maintenance before your trip begins. This includes oil changes and tags, as well as making sure your tires have plenty of pressure to get you to your destination safely.
If you are forced to change a tire, it's better to pull into a parking lot and avoid changing it on the side of the road. If you are in need of emergency help, the number for Texas Roadside Assistance can be found on the back of your Texas driver’s license.
With Thanksgiving gas prices the second cheapest in nearly a decade, make sure to fill up before you heading out and to secure your gas cap tightly once finished.
Thanksgiving can bring some of the worst winter driving conditions of the year, so when driving on the busy highway, be cautious of warning signs, speed limits and follow all the rules of the road.
Before setting out this Thanksgiving, AAA is encouraging drivers to download their mobile app to help navigate your trip safely.
