Every year during the holidays, television, radio, newspapers and others talk about the dangers of drunk driving and remind us to be careful. Additional police officers are on the streets and many cities set up a hunting ground to catch drivers at night when there are multiple parties.
This extra look reduces the risk of alcohol-related accidents and makes us all safer on the road during the holidays. Drunk drivers are not the most dangerous on the road during the holiday season. Even though most of us do not even think about being behind the wheel, but we can create risks without thinking about it.
Dealing with shopping, parties, and other school activities will make a safe driver less likely to be broken. Even if you are always calm and collected, keep in mind that some drivers may overstep the normal limit and be careful.
* Be patient and support others and the mistakes they make. Don’t forget to look for pedestrians and other travelers.
* Try to keep a close eye on what you are doing. Not only will it make you wrong, but cell phones, eating and other things will distract you from listening to other people and the silly mistakes they can make.
* Don’t pay too much attention to parking places that are full of cars and pedestrians this time. Take it slower than normal to avoid shooting or losing weight.
* Be aware of your feelings and think about taking a break when you are under intense stress, anger or anxiety. Get a cup of coffee or tea and rest for 10 minutes before returning to the frenzy.
Another often-forgotten accident, and a major problem for much of this year, is running around and sleeping. Sleeping on the wheel is obviously a dangerous side effect, but tired drivers can also become irritable and impatient.
This year if it’s normal there will be plenty of people leaving for work on Friday and starting long distances to be with family or friends. College students whose vacation begins after classes on Friday may also be home.
Here are some ideas to consider and pass on to family and friends who may be traveling by car during the holidays:
* Don’t start your trip tired. Be aware of the dangers if you can get up very early to start your trip or go directly from work or school when you are tired.
* Plan your trip 15 minutes every two hours.
* Make sure that you and everyone on your trip have emergency identification information and official identification.
* Divide the drive if necessary. Security experts recommend quenching every three hours.
* You are too tired to drive if you start driving from the road, bruises, repeated blows, are difficult to look or open your eyes, lack of road or stray.
Drag to safety soon, drink plenty of caffeine and drink for 15 minutes.
