Avoiding a Maryland Auto Accident This Christmas

By Alpert Schreyer on December 21, 2011

Snowy roadsChristmastime sees millions of Americans hit the road every year for trips to visit relatives and spread Christmas cheer; however, with so many vehicles on the road and winter weather creating dangerous conditions, auto accident injuries and even deaths occur, as well. As such, it is important for drivers traveling on Maryland roads this holiday season to plan ahead in order to make your drive as safe and stress-free as possible.

Here are some important safety precautions you can take before and during your holiday trip:

Check Weather and Road Conditions

Before setting out, find out what the weather and traffic conditions are like on the route that you will be travelling. For snow and icy conditions, give yourself plenty of extra time for slow traffic caused by hazardous weather conditions and extra cars due to holiday travel. In some instances it might be best to find an alternate route to avoid hazardous Maryland road conditions and inclement weather.

Pack a Safety Kit

When involved in a car accident or stuck in a trapped car during the winter, conditions can quickly become perilous for drivers and passengers subjected to the elements. As such, all cars should have a safety kit containing emergency equipment, non-perishable food, water, and blankets to stay safe in the cold while waiting for a rescue crew.

Inspect Your Before Driving

Even small car problems can quickly become major in bad weather. As such, make sure that all vehicle fluids are at their correct levels, that your tires are properly inflated and that there is no wear and tear on tires or other car parts that may endanger you and your passengers.

Practice Safe Driving Habits

Practice proper driving techniques, follow the rules of the road, and never travel in a rush during holiday traffic. One small mistake can lead to a devastating crash in foul weather and heavy traffic. Many are killed every year during holiday travel and safe driving can help prevent you from being involved in such a devastating incident.

While Maryland roads can present many hazards, other drivers are often the most dangerous obstacle when traveling.
