The holidays can be both a joyful and stressful time of year. Families are on the go, running errands, going shopping and taking road trips to visit relatives and friends. Here are tips for keeping your kids safe during holiday travel.
Make it a rule: everyone buckled, every ride, every time, whether it’s the long trip to visit family or around the block to the mall.
It will be a benefit to have it with you at your destination and when you travel to and from the airport. Let car rental companies know in advance if you need to rent a car seat or booster seat.
This is especially important as we enter into the holiday season.
Remind your teenage driver to be more alert during the holidays when people are more distracted and the weather is inclement.
No text message or playlist is worth the risk of taking your eyes off the road. Set your GPS to voice activated so you can concentrate on driving without having to look at your phone.
If you’re 21+ years of age and are planning on consuming alcoholic beverages, hang up the car keys and call for a cab or get a ride with a sober friend.
Put hot foods, large gifts and anything that could fly around in a crash in your vehicle’s trunk.
Be prepared for bad weather by packing extra blankets, food, and diapers. Keep your phone charged, and make sure someone at your final destination knows the route you plan to take.
