No. 2: Independence Day Average Vehicular Deaths: 505 Keep an eye out for heavy drinkers who didn't have the good sense to stay home and off the roads. No. 1: Thanksgiving Average Vehicular Deaths: 573 AAA's biggest travel holiday of the year saw 623 traffic fatalities in 2006, the most recent year on record. Whats your opinion on this?
