As a Seattle auto accident lawyer, I am excited for the upcoming holiday season. With Thanksgiving just around the corner, visiting friends and family is going to keep the streets and highways of Washington busy. King 5 News has provided a detailed chart of the busiest times and roads during the week of Thanksgiving. Also mentioned is the weather forecast that is calling for snow and gusty winds making the holiday travel more difficult. The State Department of Transportation believes that, with the increased number of travelers and the harsh weather conditions, just one accident or traffic collision could cause significant delays. It is recommended that all travelers pay attention to traffic updates and advisories in order to avoid congested areas. The state has also announced that, in order to help with traffic congestion, all construction will be suspended starting at noon on Wednesday untill Monday, although construction zone lower speed limits will still be in effect. It is the goal of the Department of Transportation to reduce high traffic problems in order to limit vehicle accidents during the Thanksgiving festivities.
Maintaining safe roads during the holiday season is an important mission that the Washington State Department of Transportation is encouraging. Avoiding busy interstates such as I-90, I-5, and Highway 2, if at all possible, would help in limiting traffic congestion. Remember to drive with caution in the difficult weather and high traffic areas.
