We’re coming up on the biggest travel week of the year. Dallas Courier’s Dallas Tire Deliveries drivers are used to the hustle and bustle of the freeways, but they know that as the holidays near, there will be even more people on the roads. According to the Bureau of transportation, the six days surrounding Thanksgiving are the most travelled days of the year. The peak is on Thanksgiving Thursday. Around this holiday, the number of long distance trips, those destinations that are 50 miles away or more, rises by 54%. This is followed by a close second at Christmas where the number rises by 23%.
Our Tire Couriers Dallas drivers tell me that starting on Sunday, football season is officially upon us. If you’re like me, you have thoroughly enjoyed a pigskin-free few months since the Super Bowl. The beginning of football season at my house means the end of a useful husband- at least on Sunday, Monday, and Thursday. That’s another thing- is no day sacred? How many more days are going to be taken over by endless hours of football? Well now the cynicism is talking, and with no basketball or hockey in sight, even the not so enthused, such as myself, are preparing for some football.
Most of us have been there. We’re cruising down the highway (at a perfectly reasonable and legal speed, no doubt) when we see it in the middle of the road: a shredded semi-truck tire leftover from a blowout. You quickly check your mirrors to find you’re boxed in and can’t change lanes. You think about slamming on the brakes, but there are cars in front of and behind you. You have no choice but to grip the wheel and hope for the best.
