You Know, Honey, Before I Got In The Car, I Should Have…

The streets and freeways of San Diego will be filled with cheerful drivers this season, going to and from office events, family gatherings, and parties with friends. And with everything that’s going on around the holidays, it’s easy to overlook a few simple steps to make your travels safer.

Here’s a few tips to take with you on the road this holiday season.


Be sure to stay on top of the routine maintenance to vehicle. Take a moment and make sure your car is up to date on its service requirements. Check those brakes and brake lights, signal lights, headlights, tires, and also, be sure the windshield wipers are up to speed. The last thing you want is to be on the road when a Southern California winter rainstorm hits and your wipers fail to operate properly.


Each of us from time to time, expresses an element of unneeded bravado when it comes to directions to a destination. “I’ve got it”, many say. That’s soon followed by “Well, I thought it was right here.” Folks, put the pride aside and map your route. There’s no shame in it and you’ll ultimately spend less time on the road. And you can often tell when another driver is lost by the way they operate their vehicle, usually driving too slow and uncertain about turns and exits, possibly hard-braking when they’ve missed a turn. Driving like this is dangerous, so map your route, be safe, and get there on time.


A relaxed, focused driver is a safe driver. So be sure to give yourself as much extra time as possible before you depart for the party or family gathering. This will ease the stress of holiday hustle-and-bustle and make it easier for you to drive the speed limit, drive defensively not aggressively, and arrive safely at your destination ready for good times!

The holiday season should be time of joy and celebration. But of course, a certain amount of stress creeps into all of our lives this time of year. Fortunately, with a few simple steps, you can make your driving experience less anxious and safer. However, not all drivers will take these measures and some of them drive recklessly, aggressively, and sometimes inebriated. Accidents can occur, and if you or someone you love was the victim of an auto accident on the road this season, it’s important that you seek competent, legal experience.
