Safe Driving Tips for the Holidays

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!

  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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!
