Safe Driving Practices to Follow Over the New Year Holiday

New Year’s Eve offers plenty of chances to celebrate both the memories of the past and the promise of good things to come. Unfortunately, it can also be dangerous for those driving during the holiday. Increased traffic, snowy or icy roads, and the possibility of impaired drivers all make driving safely during New Year’s a top priority.

Here are some tips for keeping your New Year’s travels safe, courtesy of news outlet WMUR:

  • Drive defensively. Pay careful attention to the actions of other drivers on the road. Look twice at intersections to be sure that drivers are preparing to stop for red lights or are actually traveling in the direction their turn signals indicate.
  • Let someone know where you’re going and when you plan to return. Before you head out, check the weather report, and consider staying home if roads are particularly icy or snowy. Take your cell phone with you so you can contact help quickly if needed.
  • Plan ahead if you think you will drink alcohol while you’re out. Choose a designated driver, or take a cab or public transportation.
  • Prepare your vehicle for winter driving. Make sure your battery, brakes, and tires are prepared for winter, and pack an emergency kit in case you get stuck in snowy or icy conditions.

Planning ahead can help ensure your holidays are safe and happy.
