It looks like this holiday season we’ll need to pack patience when hitting the road. According to the AAA holiday travel forecast, more Americans than ever will be traveling this holiday season. Starting on Saturday, December 21 through January 1st, 115.6 million people will travel and more than 104 million will be driving to their destination. With some information and kindness towards one another, your travels will be more fun and safer for everyone! Whether you are travelling or staying local, here a few tips and info to help you navigate the holiday season.
On the road, do not drive distracted, stay alert, and slow down when driving in winter conditions, don’t crowd the snow plow, and move over when you see emergency vehicles stopped on the side of the road.
In case of an emergency, if you are stopped or stalled in wintry weather: stay with your car while calling for help, put bright markers on your antenna or windows and keep interior dome lights on, don’t run your car for long periods of time to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning, and keep your exhaust pipe clear of any snow. More winter driving safety info available here.
