Holiday Driving Tips
The holidays are almost here. Did you know more people drive for the holidays then they do for regular vacations? Many people travel to see family around the holidays but people also love to go out and see all of the holiday decorations and lighted houses. Use these driving tips to keep your family safe during the holidays.
Have your car checked before hitting the road: This might be the most important tip. Whether you are checking the car out yourself, or having the car checked out by a mechanic. One of the fastest ways to mess up your vacation or holidays is to end up broken down in a strange town, leaving you stranded on the side of the road.
Plan ahead for delays and route changes: It is going to happen. You will run into traffic or have to change your route because of an accident or road construction. Be sure to leave extra time so that you are not feeling pressed for time. Make sure the GPS is charged and have a map as a backup.
Have a Winter Safety Kit in the car: In your winter safety kit you should have a cell phone and charger, an ice scraper, matches and even emergency candles. You should have blankets and a flash light. In case of issues with the car, have a tow rope and jumper cables as well as sand or non-clumping kitty litter to aid with traction in case the car gets stuck on ice.
