A study of Thanksgiving week vehicle crash data from the past five years in Alabama shows travel after dark increases risk for crashes and fatalities, leading to the conclusion that, if possible, all modes of transportation should be avoided after the sun goes down.

“These findings show the rationale behind our strong recommendation to avoid traveling in the darkness during Thanksgiving week, if at all possible,” said David Brown, who led the study for the University of Alabama Center for Advanced Public Safety in partnership with the Alabama Transportation Institute.
