Holiday Travel Safety Tips for Vermont and New Hampshire
As we approach the holiday season, many families in Vermont and New Hampshire will be hitting the road to visit loved ones and relatives. The increase in traffic combined with wet and icy weather conditions can make holiday travel more dangerous, making it important to take precautions that help reduce your risk of causing or being involved in a car accident.
First and foremost, make sure your car is winterized. This includes ensuring brakes are in peak condition and new all season or winter tires are on all four wheels. If you plan on driving through any of the mountainous regions of Vermont or New Hampshire, it is also a good idea to keep chains for your tires in the trunk along with kitty litter for traction if you get stuck.
Take Your Time
The best way to keep yourself and others safe during peak holiday travel is by taking your time. Follow the speed limit, always adjusting for inclement weather. Use turn signals, give other motorists plenty of room, and treat other drivers how you would like to be treated.
Remember that even the safest driver cannot prevent others from causing accidents. If you are involved in a car accident this holiday season, the experienced attorneys at Van Dorn & Curtiss can take your case to help you get the compensation you deserve.
