During the season of travel, drivers must remember that accidents are more likely to happen. Whether because there are more vehicles on the roads, or because more people are driving while intoxicated or even drowsy. We must remember that the holiday season is not an excuse to expose ourselves and our loved ones to danger.
Planning ahead, making sure we do not drink and drive, and having a second driver ready to take over if you’re too tired on long trips is essential to having a safe holiday.
Avoid serious collisions by also keeping up with your car’s maintenance.
Checking your tires, if your car has open recalls, or getting your oil changed on time, will all contribute to safer travels. During wintertime, having an emergency kit ready in the vehicle is also essential. After all, you never know when you’re going to get stuck because of a snowstorm.
