Thanksgiving Travel Safety
Everyone is taking off work and heading down the road to meet family for Thanksgiving. With that comes an increase in traffic and, unfortunately, traffic accidents. Whether it’s a minor fender bender from inattentiveness in bumper-to-bumper traffic or a serious injury sustained in a crash with an intoxicated driver, Terry Bryant Accident & Injury Law is here to help you avoid any type of accident that would ruin your holiday travel.
Follow these pointers to ensure your safety this holiday weekend:
- Service Your Vehicle—it isn’t too late to swing by your local auto shop before heading out of town. It is always a good idea to have a professional perform routine maintenance checks before a long trip to avoid any preventable delays.
- Reroute from Main Roads—oftentimes, you can save time by taking the back roads on peak travel days. A different route might add a few minutes on an average travel day but will likely save you time from avoiding congestion caused by holiday travel.
- Check the Weather—your destination may bring you to a location that is already experiencing winter weather conditions. Be sure that your car is winterized and equipped to handle ice and snow.
- Avoid Drunk Drivers—stay off the road during times when you suspect drunk drivers will be on their way home. The later into the day, the more likely you are to run into someone who has been drinking before driving.
Terry Bryant Accident & Injury Law wishes you a Happy Thanksgiving. If you or anyone you know is been in an auto accident during holiday travel, contact a board certified personal injury attorney to evaluate your potential claim.
