Your Safety on the Roads, and the Holiday Season — What does one have to do with the other?
During the holiday season, traffic increases, people are shopping, preparing for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve and as traffic increases, so do collisions and crashes on the roadways.
Truck traffic is at a its highest highest level on highways, and often the road conditions are less than ideal. Darkness comes earlier, rain and snow makes travel dangerous, and the result is an increase in accidents and injuries.
During this time of year, drivers must be especially cautious on the roads. Wet or snowy conditions make stopping your vehicle more difficult and increases the chances of losing control of your car or truck.
The best thing you can do is exercise defensive driving techniques. This includes not following too closely and avoid using cell phones or other mobile devices while driving. Watch out for other drivers, reduce your speed and pay close attention to the traffic flow.
