Many of us will be on the local roads this holiday weekend. Increased traffic and intoxication by irresponsible drivers, make for a dangerous journey for travelers. With many of the destinations, such as Las Vegas, San Diego, Los Angeles and many attractions in Orange County, in our backyards, we will face much of the traffic, even if we choose not to travel.
The following tips will certainly reduce chances of accidents and injuries:
- Take alternate routes, avoid busy highways;
- Avoid peak times, by altering travel plans;
- Allow enough time, and avoid getting on the road when you are tired or sleepy;
- Never drink and drive;
- Practice defensive driving, avoid aggressive behavior on the road;
- Make sure your vehicle is safe to drive – check your brakes, brake lights, head lights, tire pressure.
Have a safe and happy 4th of July weekend. Feel free to contact us with any questions or inquiries.
