Boing 747 London - BangkokThanksgiving is the holiday that officially kicks off the traveling season for many families. With so many people hitting the highway during this time, it is easy to get caught up in the excitement of the holiday and forget basic safety rules. By taking a few minutes to refresh your memory about them, you can help ensure that you and your family have a safe and happy holiday. Stay Safe While Driving Many families decide to drive to their destination during this time.
  • To reduce the likelihood of accidents as well as to avoid traffic, try to travel on days other than the Wednesday before the holiday. Since many people head back home on the Sunday after Thanksgiving, that day should be avoided when traveling if possible.
  • Maryland has strict laws that govern the use of cell phones while driving. Handheld devices are prohibited as is texting while driving. Instead use a hands-free method such as an earpiece that allows you to talk or use speaker phone. You can also choose to forgo the phone altogether and use the drive time to chat with your family.
  • Prep your car before you leave for the trip. Fill the tank with gas prior to starting. Check all the fluids in your vehicle as well as the tire pressure. Ensure that you are prepared for the weather conditions that you will experience while you are on the road as well as those at your destination.
  • Do not leave home without well-stocked emergency kits. You should have two kits: one for your car that contains jumper cables, fuses and the like, and one for people that includes bandages, antibiotic creams and pain relievers to name just a few items.
  • Avoid drinking and driving. Not only is it illegal, it increases the likelihood of accidents and can cause nerves to fray.
