Daugaard urges safety for Thanksgiving travelers

Posted:

 PIERRE, S.D. (AP) _ Governor Dennis Daugaard is asking South Dakotans to make safety a priority as they travel during the Thanksgiving period and upcoming holiday season.

 

He is urging motorists to follow speed limits, wear seatbelts and designate a sober driver.

 

The governor also says weather can change rapidly during this time of year. He advises motorists to carry winter survival kits, tell friends or family about travel plans and check safetravelusa.com prior to leaving for holiday gatherings.

 

South Dakota recorded more than 200 highway crashes in each of the past two Thanksgiving holiday reporting periods, which runs through Sunday. This includes one death and more than 30 injuries.
