Three Tips to Safe Holiday Travels

Safe Holiday Travels
Don’t Text & Drive

Thousands and thousands of people will be hitting the road soon for their annual Holiday visits. There will be whole families, young couples, and individual students driving home from school to visit their parents over Thanksgiving and Christmas. If you’re driving home this Holiday season, use these tips from Wilson GM for safe Holiday Travels along the way.

Check The Weather

Before you head out, take a quick look at the weather forecast and at the current radar. Watch for any potential storms heading in the direction of your route. If possible, consider waiting it out, or go into your drive prepared to take your time. Be sure to equip your vehicle with important safety tools, too, like extra food and water, reflective cones, and jumper cables.

Stay Visible

Whether you’re driving in the rain or in the middle of a sunny day, it’s always important to take the necessary steps to ensure that you’re 100% visible. Clean your headlights before you depart, and make sure that all headlights and taillights are working properly.

Put Your Cell Phone Away

You know that cell phones are dangerous distractions in cars, so why tempt yourself? Put your cell phone where it cannot be reached from the driver’s seat so you won’t be tempted to peek. It’s a good idea to take frequent breaks when driving long distances anyway, so allow yourself time to stop every couple of hours for a break and a social media check.
