Road Safety During the Holidays

The holidays can be a wonderful time of year full of gatherings with friends and family, but they can also be a dangerous time of year when traveling.

With everyone on the road headed to visit friends and family, it's extremely important to be smart and prepared before starting out on your holiday adventures. According to the National Safety Council, in 2015, 355 people died on New Year's Day, 386 on Thanksgiving Day and 273 on Christmas Day in the United States. These deaths were the result of automobile accidents. Many were alcohol related and others were the result of dangerous road conditions.

We want you to be able to enjoy a safe and happy holiday season. Here are a few suggestions to help keep you safe on the road.

  • Always have a designated driver who refrains from alcohol or any other impairing substances.
  • Put away your cellphones and avoid all forms of distracted driving.
  • Allow yourself plenty of time to get to your destination.
  • Plan for icy and snowy weather. Have an emergency kit in your vehicle with food, water and warm blankets.
  • Get plenty of rest before heading out on a major road trip. Make sure your vehicle has recently been serviced.
  • Check and rotate tires, refill wiper fluids and check your breaks.
  • Buckle Up. On long journeys children should always be in a car seat or buckled in a seat belt. Even if you are driving around the corner to visit a neighbor, be sure to use a seat belt.

In spite of all of your preparation, we know that accidents still happen. If you or someone you know is in an accident, we can help. Please contact our office for a FREE consultation.
