Minimizing The Risk Of A Motor Vehicle Accident During The Holidays

Steps You Can Take to Stay Safe on the Roads


The holidays are upon us and that typically means more traffic on the roads. Whether you’re visiting family, attending a holiday event or going to a party, you want to take some simple precautions to maximize your safety on the roadways in Maryland this holiday season:

  • Take your time—Plan ahead, so that you have plenty of time to get where you’re going without driving too fast or rolling through a few corners.
  • Buckle up—Seat belts make a big difference in a collision. It only takes a second to dramatically increase your safety.
  • Make certain you maintain your vehicle—Don’t drive in winter weather on poor tires. Make certain your brakes are in top shape and don’t run the risk of a breakdown.
  • Know where you’re going—Many accidents are caused when drivers are unfamiliar with the roads
  • Don’t drink and drive—If you want to enjoy some Christmas cheer, have a designated driver
  • Stay off the mobile devices while driving—Distracted driving is a virtual epidemic…don’t catch the bug!
