Can I Prepare for Holiday Travel Dangers?

Millions of Americans hit the road to travel for the holiday season. While it may not feel much different than rush hour for some, drivers who don’t travel that much can become easily overwhelmed. Holiday travel can be potentially dangerous, so it is vital to prepare before getting behind the steering wheel.

Planning ahead can be the difference between getting to your destination safely and a severe crash. Here’s what you need to know.

Know Your Intended Route

If you’re going to drive for the holidays, keep in mind roads and highways that may be more congested than others. Some highways may be more dangerous than others, so you should be sure to plan your route accordingly.

Try to avoid traffic whenever you’re traveling. Even if a specific route takes you a few extra miles, it may be best to consider it to avoid potential harm.

Prepare for Inclement Weather

Terrible weather can significantly impact safety. Individuals may not drive safe for conditions, putting others at risk of injuries. Keep close tabs on weather conditions and determine if it would be safer to leave at a different time than you originally intended.

Don’t Travel Too Late

If you’re driving later at night, it may be more dangerous because of tired drivers. So many drivers wait until they get off of work, then pack, and then drive. When you wait, you may not have the same cognitive abilities. Others may be the same, and a tired driver can cause some of the most devastating accidents.
