The holidays can be a very stressful time of year for those traveling on the road. Whether you are traveling near or far, it is important to keep in mind these basic safety tips to ensure you arrive safe and enjoy this wonderful time with friends and family.
Holiday road trips should be fun and relaxing, and they often are. Unfortunately, however, they can also result in disaster. Any type of travel increases your risk of involvement in an accident, and statistics consistently indicate that accidents spike around the holidays due to factors like more drunk drivers on the road and heavier traffic.
When it comes to the holidays, parking lots are a danger zone. There are many people walking between vehicles and in the roads, and you have to be careful to back out when no traffic is coming. Carts and other hazards can be present as well.
So what is the safest way to travel during the holiday season? Whether you need to book a flight today or start prepping the family car for tomorrow, it’s always better to prepare, stay safe and arrive alive.
