Safe Driving Tips for this Memorial Day Weekend

Safe Driving Tips for this Memorial Day Weekend

 

Please Note this was scheduled to post on 5/28/2016 at 7 AM but did not?

 

Every Holiday weekend people in the United States find most roads are very crowded and accidents with fatalities occur at an alarmingly  high rate. The National Safety Council issues fatality estimates for these holiday periods to draw attention to the fact that it is very dangerous to be on the road. Frankly it is dangerous every day in the Houston area while on the road.

 

Here are a few safe driving tips for this weekend and anytime:

-Establish and enforce a driver's distraction free zone where the driver has no access to smart phones, GPS devices, radio controls, video equipment, notebooks etc.. Enforce no texting, cell calls, fixing makeup, pets sitting in driver's lap,  drinking or eating while driving by the driver.

-Allow more than enough travel time to get to your destination and don't speed ( In Texas keep up with the flow traffic or else you are a hazard).

-Don't drink and drive as even small amounts of beer or wine can impair reflexes and thinking ability. If you do drink have a alternate driver ready to take over for you.

-Use seat belts for all the passengers and make sure even the children and pets are wearing seat belts.

-Try driving in defensive and safe mode especially if bad weather shows up. Go with the flow of traffic.

-Check out your car before leaving looking for potential problems such tires, fluids, brakes, warning lights, etc. Don't go on long trips if the vehicle has issues.

- Driver’s vision should not be blocked from any mirror or window.

- Control your temper and do not engage in Road Rage!
