Avoiding Auto Accidents This Thanksgiving

Friday, November 21st, 2014

In recent AAA Travel report it has been estimated that more than 46 million Americans will be hitting the road to visit friends and loves one in celebration of Thanksgiving this year. Whether it’s because of lower gas prices or extra holiday spirit, the roads are going to be a busy place for motorists during this time, and unfortunately, auto accidents are likely to occur.

Our Newburgh auto accident lawyer understands how devastating these accidents can be, especially during the holiday season, so it’s important for New Yorkers to exercise caution on the road.

Drivers can avoid auto accidents by practicing safe driving techniques like:

  • Obeying the speed limit
  • Avoiding distractions while behind the wheel, including texting and talking on the phone
  • Being well-rested before starting your journey and pulling over to rest if you feel drowsy
  • Allowing for extra travel time during inclement weather
  • Being a defensive driver by not following too closely behind other vehicles and being aware of other motorists on the road
  • Scheduling regular maintenance and services for your vehicle

Though there is no way to guarantee your safety, you can greatly reduce the risk of ending up in an auto accident.
