Have a Safe Holiday Season
Follow These Holiday Driving Safety Tips
The holiday season is upon us and it’s no surprise that December, and especially late December, is one of the busiest times of the year on America’s roads and highways. Unfortunately, these crowded roadways lead to far too many traffic related fatalities. In fact, Christmas ranks as one of the highest on the list of Most Dangerous Holidays according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) data. Accordingly, Walker Smith would like to offer a few holiday driving safety tips for you to consider this holiday season.
Part of this increased risk is that the Christmas/New Year holiday creates a lot of irregular traffic patterns. With the “mad dash” of holiday shopping, out-of-town holiday travelers, and the increased congestion associated with holiday events, congestion leads to frustration and frustration leads to risky behavior. Four-day weekends are notoriously dangerous for just that reason.
There are things you can do to reduce your risk of being a statistic this holiday season. Stay safe by using some common sense and observe the following this holiday season:
- Buckle up
- Keep your cool
- Use a designated driver when drinking
- Stay alert
- Don’t speed.
