The Thanksgiving travel season starts Tuesday night.
2.7 million Texans are expected to hit the road this week. Wherever your travels take you, the Texas Department of Public Safety is warning you to drive slow, wear your seatbelt and avoid the road less traveled.
"Stay on the interstate, most traveled roadways, more convenience stores, more gas stations, means of help if you do break down," DPS Corporal John Gonzalez said.
If you do break down or need help when traveling in Texas, you can call DPS for assistance. They won't repair your car or pay for the tow truck, but they can get you help.
The toll free number is 1-800-525-5555 . You can also find that number on the back of your driver's license.
