Holiday Driving Tips Banner


If you're traveling over the holidays or simply going across town to visit friends and family, here are some Holiday Driving Tips to keep you safe:

  • ALWAYS wear your seat belt
  • Never drive when you're tired
  • Obey speed limits
  • Don't run red lights
  • Don't overload your car with passengers (everyone must have a seat belt)
  • Don't drive distracted (pull over to use your cell phone and NEVER text and drive)
  • Don't fiddle with the radio or any other device in your car while driving
  • Don't have the radio cranked up; you can't hear sirens or a horn warning you of possible trouble
  • Don't drive like you own the road; drive like you own the car
  • Don't drink and drive (always have a designated driver if you do drink alcohol)
