Check out a few ways to stay safe over the holiday season:
Designate a Driver & Buckle Up
Over New Year’s Eve, police see an increase of traffic incidents that are the result of drinking and driving. If you choose to drink on New Year’s Eve, make sure to designate a driver who will not drink that evening. Double check that everyone in the car has their seatbelt fastened. When you wear your seatbelt, you decrease your chance of injury and fatality if a car accident occurs. If you’re involved in a car accident and need legal representation, call us right away at (478) 845-1961.
Stay Focused on the Road
More and more accidents are caused because the driver is distracted. The distraction could be texting, using your navigation system, playing the radio too loud, joking around with friends, eating food, applying makeup, and more. Because the roads have an increase of traffic on this particular night, it’s important to minimize as much distraction as possible.
Service Your Vehicle
Are you traveling between Christmas and New Year’s Day? Before you travel, it’s important to take your car in for a routine maintenance check. Making sure the oil is fresh, the tires have an appropriate amount of tread, and your brake pads aren’t too low, are three of many vehicle maintenance precautions that you should take. Servicing your vehicle before you travel will help keep you safe on the road.
