There are three certainties of the holidays: food, family and travel. Here are some tips to help keep you and your family safe when road tripping this season.
• Stay alert: Fatigue is a number one cause of vehicle accidents; make sure you are well-rested before traveling.
• Prep for driving in the dark: Long travel in the winter months means night driving; keep your headlights, wipers and windshield clean for clear vision.
• Learn your route: Be aware of any construction zones, detours, heavy traffic areas.
• Use common sense: Practice defensive driving, wear your seat belt and never text and drive.
