Statewide Iowa — Despite high gasoline prices, Triple-A Iowa forecasts that one in five people will take to the road for the long Thanksgiving weekend. And with the high number of vehicles on the road, the Iowa State Patrol says it’s more important than ever to obey traffic laws as you travel for Thanksgiving.
Iowa State Patrol Trooper Kevin Krull says you should practice drive defensively.
Trooper Krull urges you to drive in such a way that you do not become a statistic.
He says the highway death toll doesn’t take into account the number of traffic-crash injuries each year.
Trooper Krull reminds us of what he calls the ABC’s of arriving alive, “Always. Be. Careful.”
