Holiday driving safety tips
The holidays are a great time to reconnect with friends and family while taking a break from some of the stresses of work and such. However, with the increased traffic and poor weather conditions on the roads, there are some risks that can go into driving this time of year. Take a look at these holiday driving safety tips so you’re prepared for what’s to come this holiday season!
If you’re planning on traveling this holiday season, be sure to check over your vehicle before traveling. The last thing you want is to break down and be stranded on a cold Christmas Eve. Check the tire pressure, oil levels, battery, and check the weather to see what you can expect.
Stay well-rested before traveling
Each year, thousands of accidents occur simply due to driver fatigue. Spending the day with family and all the events that go into that can be exhausting, so be sure you’re getting an adequate amount of sleep and consider having an extra coffee before hitting the road for a quick energy boost. Be sure you’re paying attention to the road at all times regardless of what might be going on off in the distance.
It’s not always enough to simply drive smart. You need to be aware of others on the roads who may not be as well prepared as you. leave plenty of distance between you and the vehicle in front of you in case of a deer running out on the road or if they hit a patch of ice. Let aggressive drivers pass by you if they’re getting too close. You’ll also want to be on the lookout for vehicles that may be swerving or driving irresponsibly, because many family get togethers include alcohol and not all drivers wait long enough before getting behind the wheel.
