Holiday Driving Safety Tips: Video

Happy Holidays to You!  I'm posting seven holiday driving safety tips both in text and in a video!

 So here are the tips:

  1. Don't Speed — speed kills
  2. Don't Drive Impaired — if you want to party, great!  BUT designate a non-drinking driver ahead of time
  3. Motorcyclists and Bicyclists Protect Yourselves — you may know what you're doing and where you're going, but people in cars typically are not looking for you.  Wear protective gear: Helmet, jacket, pants, boots, etc.
  4. Get Rid of Tailgaters: They may just seem annoying but they're really quite dangerous.  I've represented many people who have been severely injured in a rear-end accident.   It is not uncommon for the victim of a rear-end accident to wind up having surgery for neck, back or other injuries caused by the rear-end accident.
  5. Don't Prevent Others From Passing You
  6. Beware of Stopped Vehicles at a Crosswalk: It's likely that some pedestrian is in that crosswalk
  7. Keep Your Cell Phone WIth You: Although it may be illegal to put that phone up to your ear (use your Bluetooth!), you need to keep a phone in your car for emergency situations.  Remember, 911 is your friend.

  1. Holiday driving safety tips with videos are very attractive in this article. It gives tips to people driving bicycles, motorcycles and cars. It also furnishes the ways to get rid of tailgaters.

  2. Careless driving is charged way too often in Ontario. Many police officers in Ontario believe that if there is an accident a charge *must* be laid and often they will lay a Careless Driving charge. This is not proper policing IMO.

  3. Great tips! And also watch weather reports prior to any long distance drive or before driving in isolated areas. Delay trips when especially bad weather is expected.

  4. Before driving, you should have your car properly checked, to avoid any malfunctions. Following these tips will be a good idea to all those drivers, especially if you don't know the road you'll be driving on.

  5. The advices that you have shared are very helpful. We must always remember these things when driving especially nowadays that there are so many car accidents that are happening during holidays.

  6. Driving safely is a basic thing that drivers should always keep. This will avoid inconvenience for other drivers and would keep the road accessible for everyone.

  7. To protect our life, we need to protect ourselves first. We need to take care every time. As long as your driving, learn to focus on the road.
