Safe Driving Tips for the Holiday Season

Avoid any and all distractions.

This includes the following, while driving, but is not limited to:

  • Texting
  • Eating
  • Drinking
  • Smoking
  • Grooming
  • Applying Makeup
  • Reading
  • Checking Social Media
  • Checking E-mails
  • Messing with the Radio
  • Turning Around to Talk to Back Seat Passengers

Maintain a safe speed.

Cruise control is your friend on long holiday trips. Stay at a safe speed and don’t rush, it only takes a few seconds for an accident to occur.

Check road conditions before you leave. 

Snow and ice can complicate a holiday road trip so be sure to check the weather conditioners before you leave your home for your destination. MoDot can be a great resource for this.

Get maintenance done before you take a long holiday trip.

Make sure your oil is changed, your tires are in good shape, your transmission fluid is at the optimum level, etc. – before you leave. There is nothing worse than being stuck on the side of the road in the middle of the holiday season.
