The Oklahoma Highway Safety Office also recommends other steps for safe Thanksgiving travel:

• Make sure all children in your vehicle are placed in age-appropriate car seats and all adults are buckled up.

• Plan ahead for inclement weather, and make sure your vehicle contains appropriate emergency equipment.

• Don't allow distractions. Put away the cellphone and electronic equipment while driving.

• Don't drive drowsy. Get plenty of sleep before driving, and schedule frequent stops along the way.

“If you see an impaired driver on the road, contact local law enforcement or dial *55 from any cellphone to alert the Oklahoma Highway Patrol,” Vowell said. “Our goal is to keep Oklahomans safe on the roads this holiday season.”
