Holidays can be a dangerous time of year on the roads

The holidays are one of the most dangerous times on the roads; people are traveling all over and coming in from places around the United States. During the Christmas period, it's not uncommon for the number of drunk driving accidents to rise. This means there's a higher risk of suffering an injury or being killed in a tragic, fatal accident.

The winter poses some other issues that make driving difficult, too. Some areas may receive snow or have freezing temperatures that lead to ice, while others may have heavy rains or high winds. As the weather conditions change, drivers need to be aware and take steps to prepare themselves.

The holidays can also be daunting because of the number of people on the roads. More traffic means more congestion, but drivers should still attempt to stay back far enough to prevent an accident if traffic suddenly comes to a stop. Drivers should stay within the posted speed limits at all times, and if there is more traffic than usual, consider driving slower to help space yourself out from the crowd.

This time of year can be exciting, and the last thing anyone wants is to be involved in an accident. Before you head out, take the time to make sure you're prepared if someone hits you. Have your insurance card, and keep medical information, like allergies or information on your health, prepared. If you are hit and have to go to the hospital, you'll be prepared to work with police and to file a claim soon after. Our website has more information about the next steps to take.
