PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Thanksgiving is a great holiday for the family and there is no doubt that the roads and airports are packed with people heading for grandma’s house, but with all of the travel comes risk and I would not be doing my job if I didn’t focus on several key points.

First, don’t drink and drive. Without a doubt the greatest risk you will be facing is people on the road who have done a bit too much celebrating. You need to make certain you are part of the solution and not the problem.
