Millions of motorists take the road during the week of Thanksgiving. If you plan on being one of them this year, take special care to protect yourself and your loved ones from injury by driving with caution and paying attention to the road.
Distracted driving is one of the most common factors in car accidents. This includes cellphone use, using GPS, adjusting radios, reading maps, eating and drinking, personal grooming, and anything else that may take your eyes off of the road. It is always necessary to pay attention when driving, but dangers significantly increase during high-traffic holidays.
In addition to paying attention to the road, be sure to:
- Drive sober
- Obey all traffic signs and signals
- Allow for at least one car length distance between yourself and other vehicles
- Give yourself plenty of time to reach your destination
- Plan ahead for weather delays
Of course, even the most cautious driver cannot account for the behavior of others and, while paying attention can help you avoid an accident, it may not be enough in all cases. If you are injured in a car accident, Little Rock personal injury attorney Phillip Duncan and his legal team are here to take your case and help you recover all that you are entitled to.
