There are so many things to do to prepare for the holidays: last minute shopping, taking care of kids out of school, cooking, going to parties, and working. The temptation to speed to the mall before it closes or fire off a quick text to a friend is there.
But that one last present means nothing to your family compared to your well-being. And any message you want to send can wait. If you find yourself rushing around and taking risks on the road, remember the purpose of the holidays is to spend time with your loved ones, and even a minor car wreck will put a damper on your holiday season.
Stay safe on the road by:
- Buckling up
- Putting the phone away
- Slowing down
- Driving defensively
- Getting plenty of sleep
Help Make Our Holiday Wishes Come True
Everyone should be hoping there are no drunk driving accidents for the rest of the year.
Traditionally the accident rate spikes during the holiday season, from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Eve. It’s time we change that tradition. Enjoy your holiday parties, festive dinners, football gatherings and New Year’s Eve celebration safely by:
- Planning ahead who will be your designated driver if attending holiday festivities or a game-day party
- Serving food and non-alcoholic refreshments at your party and being careful that your guests don’t accidentally overindulge
- Remembering that wine at a quiet dinner can also raise a driver’s BAC to an illegal limit
- Avoiding the roads from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m. and on holidays when drunk drivers are most common
