If you’re leaving on a trip to see your family or enjoy warmer climates, you aren’t the only one—December is, after all, a month of holiday travels.
Unfortunately, it’s also a month of hazardous driving conditions. Before you head out on a trip, it helps to be prepared. Here are a few safe driving tips for the holidays!
- Make sure your vehicle is in tip-top shape. You don’t want to drive over snow and slush in a car that isn’t in pristine condition. Get it checked out today at Capital Toyota!
- Map your route in advance and be prepared for busy roads. If you intend to go somewhere specifically on Christmas Eve or New Year’s, you should consider leaving early.
- Stay fresh and alert. Long trips are exhausting. Let someone else drive when you get tired, or pull over at a rest stop if no one can.
- Use a designated driver. Even the most conservative of us find themselves drinking during the holidays, and unless you plan to stay the night, not having a designated driver is a recipe for disaster when it’s time to head home.
From all of us here at Capital Toyota, we wish you a safe and happy holiday season!
