Thanksgiving Weekend Travel Safety

Officials with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) are calling on drivers to exercise additional caution this holiday weekend. Although the Thanksgiving Holiday is typically a weekend filled with cheer, gratitude and gatherings with loved ones, it's also known for being particularly deadly on U.S. roadways. As one of the most traveled holidays of the year, roads in Asheville, North Carolina and across the nation are going to be packed.

Catching Distracted Drivers

Some law enforcement officers have resorted to creative methods to catch distracted drivers. According to WLOS ABC News Channel 13, police officers in Marietta, Georgia are now dressing as construction workers at busy intersections to catch drivers who are texting and tweeting behind the wheel. The construction crew outfits gave police officers the ability to move through the intersections and glance into cars and trucks. It hasn't been easy for law enforcement officers to enforce texting-while-driving bans in the past, because it is so difficult to see what's actually going on in the driver's seat. This unconventional method allowed officers to see what was going on inside of vehicles.

Speeding in Asheville

Residents in a Fairview neighborhood are concerned about speeding drivers this summer. According to WLOS ABC News Channel 13, Spring Lake Drive, a dead-end road in a residential area, is notorious for speeders. Although the speed limit is posted at 25 miles per hour and there is also a "Children at Play" sign, drivers routinely speed through the area. One family recalled a near miss involving a speeding and possibly distracted driver. With school out, families are hoping to walks around the neighborhood safely with their children. At least one concerned citizen has raised the issue with local law enforcement, although we understand her phone calls haven't been returned.

Blue Ridge Parkway Crash

At least two people were injured in a crash on the Blue Ridge Parkway. According to WLOS ABC News Channel 13, the one-vehicle crash occurred near the Folk Art Center in Buncombe County. For currently unknown reasons, an SUV left the roadway, and went about 25 feet down an embankment. Although this wasn't an area well known for crashes, Thad Lewis, Riceville Fire Department Chief, was quick to point out that drivers need to be cautious, especially with more motorcycle riders taking to the roadways.
