AA Accident Attorneys Shares Tips for Safe Holiday Travel
In a new statement to the press, AA Accident Attorneys provides holiday travelers with some basic safety guidelines.
FRESNO, Calif., December 13, 2018 (Newswire.com) - The holiday season is here—and with it, many families are making travel arrangements. Before hitting the road to see family or friends, it’s advisable to review some basic driving guidelines, ensuring safety on treacherous roads or in peak seasonal traffic. In a new statement to the press, AA Accident Attorneys provides some safe driving tips and recommendations.
“First, always check the weather before you leave,” recommends AA Accident Attorneys. Advanced weather apps make it easy to discover whether road conditions will be compromised. In bad weather, drivers are advised to either delay their trip until conditions improve, or leave early enough to allow themselves plenty of time to reach their destination.
On long car trips, we recommend stopping for a break every two to three hours.

“Taking care of your vehicle is another important step,” comments AA Accident Attorneys. “Take care of your car, and it will take care of you!” Specifically, motorists are encouraged to have the oil changed, tires rotated, and vehicle inspected before they hit the road.
Another important tip from AA Accident Attorneys is to keep distractions at bay. “Distracted driving is the top cause of highway accidents,” the firm notes. “And distractions can include anything that takes your eyes off the road, your hands off the wheel, and your mind off what you’re doing.” Examples include texting, taking phone calls, even eating and drinking.
AA Accident Attorneys recommends regular breaks, too. “You need to give your eyes time to rest, and your blood flow a chance to perk up,” the law firm states. “On long car trips, we recommend stopping for a break every two to three hours.”
Still another piece of advice from AA Accident Attorneys is to obey all the rules of the road. “During the holidays, when traffic is at its apex, it’s more important than ever to follow basic highway protocol—such as not tailgating,” the firm notes.
Motorists are also advised to do their driving during daylight hours when they feel most awake. “Ensure a good night’s sleep before you head out on a long trip, whenever possible,” AA Accident Attorneys notes.
One final piece of advice is to know the name of a good car accident lawyer in the area—just in case. “If you are involved in an accident, make sure you know a firm that can champion your rights and assist you in recovery,” AA Accident Attorneys states.
