The Holidays are such a wonderful time of year for spending time with close friends and family. However, it can also be a particularly stressful time of year to travel on the roads. Here are a few safety tips to minimize the risk of personal injuries if you are out on the roads this Holiday season:
· Do not follow other vehicles too closely.
· Make sure to observe the speed limit.
· If you are near a shopping mall or another area where there are a lot of pedestrians, then make sure to be alert for distracted pedestrians that are busy shopping and not paying attention to cars.
· Make sure your vehicle is winter-proofed and ready for snow if you are traveling outside of the state of South Carolina for the Holidays.
· Plan for a designated driver if you are going to be out drinking during the Holidays.
· If you are traveling with your children, make sure they are buckled up and in the proper car seats or booster seats.
· Make sure to take turns driving if you find yourself on a long road trip and avoid driving if you get too drowsy.
