Buckle Up!

A reminder - 2023 Thanksgiving Buckle Up campaign materials


Thanksgiving Weekend Travel
November 22-26, 2023

During this Thanksgiving weekend, millions will hit our nation's roads, eager to spend time with family and friends. It’s one of the busiest travel times of the year. Unfortunately, more people on the roadways means the potential for more vehicle crashes.

  • 361 passenger vehicle occupants were killed in vehicle crashes across the nation during the Thanksgiving weekend of 2021.
  • Nighttime is deadlier than daytime in terms of seat belt use. Over the 2021 Thanksgiving weekend, 52% of passenger vehicle occupants killed in crashes at night were unbuckled, compared to 46% during the day.
