Holiday Safety Tips: Be Careful When Driving for the Holidays

Holiday Safety Tips: Be Careful When Driving for the Holidays

Every year, thousands of people travel for the holidays. In Southern California, this means the already crowded freeways will have even more people on it. This makes the road a common place for a number of dangers.

When you factor in the potential of rainy weather, it is increasingly important to know how to stay safe when traveling during the holidays. Here are some tips that you can follow.

Leave Earlier Than Expected

This is especially true if the weather is bad and rain is falling. You may want to slow down on the road and give yourself more time to get where you need to go. You want to drive with caution; defensive driving can help keep you safe.

Make Sure You Know Your Routes

Some areas in Southern California are more crowded—and thus more dangerous—than others. You should know your route ahead of time, and alternate routes that you can take if there is too much traffic.

Being prepared allows you to get a better idea of the way you want to drive to get to your destination.

Know If Your Car Needs Any Repairs or Fixes

If you plan on traveling for a long distance, you want to get your car checked before taking off for the holidays. Many places are closed on the actual holiday and some on the days surrounding it, so getting work done early is important.

This can be as big as changing your oil or brakes, or something as small as changing your windshield wipers.

Ensuring that you are properly prepared to travel the busy roads and highways of Southern California is important around the holidays. We’ve all seen how much traffic can come from everyone leaving the day before. Be prepared and be safe.
