Staying safe on U.S. roads this holiday season

Over the next several weeks, many Americans will be traveling far and wide to spend time with loved ones. These trips can be exciting and inspiring, but they can also be very stressful. Depending on the road conditions and traffic conditions any given traveler encounters, a relatively uneventful trip can become one defined by tragedy. It is therefore important to do all you can to prepare for a safe journey in order to prevent car accidents whenever possible.

The director of the Governor's Office of Highway Safety perhaps said it best when he recently noted that, "We always tell people to buckle up, slow down, drive sober and put down the cell phone, but now is also the time to turn your attention to your car. Walk around your vehicle. Check your tire pressure and tread and make sure all lights are in working order." By preparing your car for the journey, you better ensure your own safety.

In addition, it is important to mentally prepare yourself for your trip. Make sure that you are well-rested and well-fed before you leave, so that you do not risk driving while drowsy or becoming distracted by hunger. Ensure that you are sober and calm while behind the wheel, as drunk driving and aggressive driving are both inherently dangerous choices. And make sure to avoid using your phone while you are driving unless you are faced with an emergency that requires you to access your phone in order to obtain necessary roadside assistance.
