2015 Holiday Travel Forecast
Keeping in line with a seven-year trend, 2015 is predicted to see a 1.3% increase in the number of people traveling 50 or more miles from their homes to celebrate with family and friends between December 23rd and January 3rd. This puts projected holiday travelers at just over 100 million – the highest number for any year on record. If you plan to be among them, drive courteously, put the cellphone down, and refrain from drinking and driving. These simple steps can help prevent your causing a car accident and protect those you love from injury.
The Vermont personal injury attorneys at Van Dorn & Curtiss wish you and your family a healthy, safe, and happy holiday season. We would also like to remind you to prepare for your trip by checking the tread and pressure of your tires, making sure your battery is fully functional, and ensuring all lights and windshield wipers are working appropriately. Please also remember that, while we are not expecting much inclement weather on Christmas Eve or day in Vermont or New Hampshire, traveling in the winter with blankets in the trunk is always a good idea.
