What driving tips and suggestions do you have for people during the holiday season? Recently, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) put out some driving tips to make this a safer holiday season. Here are a few of the tips given. Do you have any others?
1. Protect Yourself and Your Passengers – Wear a seatbelt because wearing your seatbelt can reduce your risk of dying in a crash by nearly 50 percent.
2. Celebrate Safely
a. Plan ahead – Always designate a non-drinking driver before any holiday party.
b. Take the keys – Don’t let friends drive if they are impaired.
c. Be a safe host – If you’re hosting a party, remind your guests to plan ahead and designate their sober driver; offer food and alcohol-free beverages; and make sure all of your guests leave with a sober driver.
3. Slow Down – Slow down and give yourself the extra space to react and break. This will allow you to be safe if you experience snow, ice or other hazardous weather.
