What can I do to protect myself and my family while traveling during the holiday season?
That’s a great question. There are some things you and your family can do to minimize your chances of being involved in a Harris County car wreck during the holidays.
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out why car accidents increase during the winter holiday season. Not only are the roads busier with local and interstate travelers and throngs of shoppers, but also stress, inattention, and even drinking and driving tend to peak during the period from Thanksgiving through New Year’s. This combination spells trouble for everyone on the road.
This of course doesn’t mean that everyone drives negligently during the holidays. There are plenty of responsible drivers on the road, and if you are reading this, you’re probably one of them.
The best way to protect yourself and those you care about is to drive as safely as possible whenever you venture out—and particularly during the winter holiday season. Be sure to use your turn signals and always drive within the posted speed limit.
Also, make a point of paying attention to how other drivers are behaving, as they could be distracted or even intoxicated. If you see someone else driving erratically or negligently, alert the authorities and try to put some extra distance between your car and the other driver’s vehicle.
If your best efforts aren’t enough to keep you from being involved in a Harris County auto accident, protect your legal rights calling an experienced Houston personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
