Safe Driving Tips For Memorial Weekend 2021
Drive appropriately per the weather conditions.
You always want to obey the speed limit, but if it is raining heavily outside, drive slower. Pay attention and drive cautiously. You don’t want to risk hydroplaning into another car, guard rail, or worse.
Be mindful of the holiday traffic.
Holidays bring MANY people out of their homes and onto the roads to travel around the same time. Take out your phone, check the GPS, and see how much traffic there will be before you leave. This way you can check to see if there is a better route than you normally take because there is less traffic that way.
Make sure your car is in good, working condition before taking it out.
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 a trip to the Lake of the Ozarks.
Avoid distraction while driving.
This includes the following, while driving, but is not limited to:
- Applying Makeup
- Checking Social Media
- Checking E-mails
- Messing with the Radio
- Turning Around to Talk to Back Seat Passengers
