The holiday season is one of the most exciting of the year, but it’s also one of the most dangerous to drive during. With more people on the road than most other times of the year, the chance for accidents and hazards is high. Here are a few tips that can help you when you’re on your way to grandma’s house for Christmas dinner!
1. Get a good night’s sleep: It may seem like a simple thing to do, but getting a good night’s rest is important when it comes to being alert while you’re driving. Getting a good night’s sleep can also be difficult during a time of the year when you may be expected to do a lot. Take a break!
2. Plan your route in advance and be ready for detours: You may be driving to the same house you’ve been driving to for decades or dinner may be at a new place this year. Either way, it makes sense to go over your route one more time before you go and be ready to have to take a detour of something happens along the way.
3. Follow speed limits and keep your cool: Road rage is a very serious thing, don’t be a part of it and don’t be affected by it. Don’t tailgate and follow the speed limit. Everyone is going to have a shorter fuse than normal when there are that many cars on the road.
4. Secure your home when you leave: Make sure that you lock up your home when you leave and set your alarm if you have one.
5. Try to relax a little: Sounds easier said than done, right? Well, you’re right. But, try to relax a little bit if you can and enjoy the holidays with your family.
