Will you be traveling this holiday season?

With Thanksgiving nearly here and Christmas just around the corner, you and many other Georgia residents may have some traveling to do in the coming weeks. If you are married, you may have multiple trips to multiple family houses to get to, and even if you are not married, you may plan to go back home and visit your own family for both holidays or others.

You may anticipate this travel every year, but it is still important to go over your plans before you hit the road. The holiday season often means that the roads are even busier than usual, so making sure you have everything in order can help you stay focused on driving.

Safety tips for holiday driving

When trying to get to a destination, especially by a specific time, you may find yourself feeling rushed or distracted as you try not to be late. Of course, speeding and distractions are two serious problems that could quickly lead to a car accident. In efforts to have a calm trip and arrive safely, you may want to consider the following tips:

  • Get your basic car maintenance done ahead of time. You do not want to worry about driving on bald or low tires or getting stuck in a rainstorm or snow with old wiper blades.
  • Make sure that you know your route. If you are using a GPS, preset your destination ahead of time so that you are not trying to enter an address while getting in the car or worse, when on the road.
  • Though winter weather is not consistent in the state, there is always a chance that a serious snowstorm could hit. Make sure that you know how to accommodate for icy road conditions.
  • Take breaks and drive rested. If another person is taking the trip with you, swap out every 100 miles or so, depending on the length of your trip, and always make sure to get enough rest before taking a long journey.

Everyone wants to get to their holiday destinations, but some individuals may try to speed or otherwise drive carelessly if they are in a hurry. If a negligent or reckless driver ruins your holiday season by causing a car accident that leaves you seriously injured, you may want to look into your legal options for seeking compensation.
