The holiday season is a joyous time of year, except for the victims of car accidents or truck accidents. Unfortunately holiday season is also car accident season.
You can chalk it up to bad weather, heavy traffic, or inattentiveness. Often you can chalk it up to alcohol or drugs, but the truth remains that the last month of the year is the biggest month for car accidents. Ho, ho, ho.
When you’re out and about this holiday season, take a little extra time and be extra careful. Remember these basic safety rules:
1.Keep your eyes open to the traffic on every side of you.
2. Avoid using a cell phone (and never text while you drive).
3. Never assume that other drivers see you. Assume they don’t and drive accordingly.
4. Leave plenty of room between you and the driver ahead of you.
5. Pay attention at all times. (Put down the shopping list, your homework, etc.!)
