Are you or your family planning to drive this holiday season? Whether you’re heading out of state or to your favorite vacation spot to celebrate the holidays, here are some simple ways to help stay safe on the roads:
- Ensure your vehicle is properly maintained. Have your car and tires inspected before you take a long drive.
- Map your route in advance and be prepared for busy roads. If possible, consider leaving earlier or later to avoid heavy traffic.
- Have roadside assistance contact information on hand, in case an incident occurs on the road.
- In case of an emergency, keep a cell phone and charger with you at all times. Many companies offer smartphone applications that enable motorists to request help without making a phone call.
