The holiday season is a time for family, friends, and fun. But it can also be a dangerous time on the roads. That's why our personal injury lawyers are providing some tips to help you stay safe this holiday season. Whether driving to your family's house or hitting the town for some holiday cheer, follow these tips, and you'll be much less likely to find yourself in a car accident.
Check Your Car Before Getting On The Road
Make sure your car is in good working condition before heading out. Check the tire pressure, fluid levels, and lights to ensure everything runs smoothly.
Plan Ahead of Time
Map out your route ahead of time and avoid distractions, such as using your phone, while driving. This will not only reduce the chance of getting into an accident, but it will also ease stress and help save time on your holiday travels.
Be Aware of Your Surroundings
Please pay attention to other drivers on the road and anticipate their actions. Keep an eye out for hazards such as icy roads or impaired drivers.
Avoid Distractions While Driving
Put down your phone and avoid any activities that take your attention away from the road. This includes eating, drinking, changing the music, and having intense conversations with passengers.
If you're Drinking Alcohol, Don't Drive
Call a taxi or designated driver instead. Stay alert, and don't drive while tired. If you're feeling drowsy, pull over and rest or switch to a different driver. Always follow traffic laws and signals.
