Safe Travels This Holiday Season!
In fact, according to a recent estimate from AAA, more than 53.4 million people will be traveling this year, a number that almost reaches pre-Covid travel numbers! Where are most people headed? Of the top 10 destinations for Thanksgiving, three of them are in Florida: Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, and Tampa!
So with all these travelers, how do you keep safe on the road? Here’s a few tips from Q Auto & Injury!
1. Never drive drowsy! Plan your travel so you are driving when you are most alert. Drowsy driving has been shown to be just as bad as drunk driving. Don’t put yourself, your loved ones, or others at risk.
2. Put the phone away! You should never text and drive, but it’s even more dangerous with more travelers on the road. Put your phone on Do Not Disturb mode while driving so you reduce the number of distractions. If you need to use your phone, pull off at a rest stop.
3. Drive for the weather conditions! If roads are wet, risks increase. Hydroplaning is a dangerous reality, as is skidding if you’re forced to brake hard. You might be in a hurry to see your loved ones, but they’d rather see you at their house, not in a hospital. Move to the right lane of travel, and reduce your speed if the weather doesn’t cooperate.
4. Don’t drink and drive! Some holiday celebrations include alcoholic beverages. If you drink alcohol, don’t drive, PERIOD!
