Best Practices for Road Safety During Holiday Season

Can you believe it? The holiday season is here! As we prepare to shop, visit loved ones and join in on all the holiday festivities, we need to make sure that we are following safety protocols.

Here are best practices for road safety during the holiday season:

  1. Check weather conditions –

Being aware of the weather allows you to determine how long it will take to get to your destination and whether your vehicle is drivable for that particular road condition.

  1. Watch for pedestrians –

There’s no doubt that foot traffic increases during holiday season. Make sure you look around several times before you back up, drive through crosswalks and navigate through parking garages.

  1. Do not drive when you are sleep deprived –

Some businesses will open sooner and close later to accommodate customers. Make sure you get an adequate amount of rest before you leave home.
