- With increased traffic due to the holiday season, it is best that you strictly follow the rules and drive within the speed limit at all times. Speeding is among the most common contributing factors of traffic vehicle accidents, and you must neither drive slowly nor too fast, as both can be dangerous.
- Avoid drinking and driving. If you are drunk, ask a friend to drive you home or call a cab.
- Drive during the day time, as the probability of getting involved in an accident increases dramatically after dark due to lower visibility.
- Inclement weather is a major factor for increased car accidents during the holiday season because of the snow and ice. Over 116,800 Americans are injured and another 1,300 are killed in auto accidents due to icy, slushy, or snowy roads and pavements annually, according to a report by Safe Winter Roads. It is best that you winterize your car, and whenever possible, avoid driving in harsh weather conditions.
- Avoid distracted driving, and resist the temptation of taking calls or reading and replying to messages on your phone.
- Be extra careful about vehicles in your car’s blind spots.
- Avoid tailgating and maintain a safe distance from the vehicles ahead.
- Always check tire pressure as inadequate pressure can lead to decreased traction, increasing the chances of slipping and sliding.
