Four Ways to Travel More Safely This Holiday Season

By The Law Office of WT Johnson on December 3, 2014

This holiday season, millions of Texans will make plans to hit the road, whether that means doing some holiday shopping or traveling across several states to be with loved ones. Experienced Dallas car accident attorneys will join those on the roads, always aware that practicing safe driving can reduce the risk of a serious crash – but that not all drivers will pay such careful attention.

Because traffic increases during the holiday season, it’s important to keep safety in mind when you head out. Here are four ways to improve your safety behind the wheel this holiday season:

  • Plan ahead. Distracted driving, “road rage” and speeding often result when drivers feel pressed for time. By planning ahead and leaving yourself extra time for travel, you reduce the temptation to take risks that increase your chances of a crash. Plan your route, keep an eye on the weather and remember to stay calm even in traffic gridlock.
  • Buckle up. Your seat belt offers one of the easiest ways to reduce your risk of serious injury, even if another driver causes a crash. Always buckle up and require your passengers to do the same. Check car seats to make sure kids are properly secured as well.
  • Never drive drunk. If you’ve been drinking at a holiday party or are taking medications that affect your ability to stay alert, don’t drive. Call a cab or find a sober, alert friend to help you travel. You’ll help keep yourself and others safer on the road.
  • Prepare your vehicle. Now is a good time to take care of basic vehicle maintenance, like tire rotations and oil changes. Fill your windshield fluid and coolant if they are low, and put an “emergency kit” in your vehicle so you’ll have resources if an accident occurs.

The experienced Dallas wreck lawyers at The Law Office of WT Johnson wish everyone safe travels this holiday season.
