447 Will Die on Roads Over Holiday Weekend

November 25th, 2009 by ed friedrich

The National Safety Council is estimating 447 people will die in traffic accidents over the Thankgiving holiday and 23,7000 will be disabled. That’s down from 484 deaths last year. I don’t know how they’re figuring but they do say to wear your seat belt. You have a 45 percent better chance of surviving.

Seat belts will save 395 lives this weekend. If everybody wore their belts, another 103 would be spared.

If you spot a drunk driver, pull over in a safe spot and call the police.
