The holidays are here, and so are the accidents.

Distracted Driving Santa_iSockphoto

The holidays are a time for celebration and togetherness but they are also a time for last-minute shoppers and holiday party-goers. Whether people are making a “Happy Holidays!” phone call from behind the wheel, dashing to the next holiday function, or drinking “spirited” eggnog,  drivers exhibit dangerous behaviors  this time of year.

Driving when you’re distracted, impaired or tired is always dangerous. However, low visibility, rain, ice and snow, and the pressures of the holidays makes December a dangerous month to be on the road. Whether you’re driving a sleigh or a car, drive safely this holiday season!

Avoid these four most dangerous holiday driving hazards:

1. Distracted Driving: driving while using your cell for talking and texting, browsing the web, and engaging in any activity other than driving.

2. Impaired Driving: involves the consumption of alcohol or use of drugs. During the winter holidays, there is an increased number of drunk or impaired drivers on the roadways. The number of tragedies including serious injuries and loss of life increases significantly as a result of impaired driving. There are multiple ride share programs and taxi businesses available for use during the holidays.

3. Pressured Driving: Forgetting to purchase gifts, meeting deadlines and getting home in time for supper are factors that can increase the pressures and stress created by trying to accomplish multiple tasks in a small amount of time. Stressed out drivers may drive faster for current conditions, aggressively and dangerously change lanes, fail to yield or stop properly, and disregard others’ safety when on the road.

4. Tired Driving: The winter holidays increase activities and demands that cause a decrease or lack of sleep.

As personal injury attorneys, the trend we see the most is distracted driving more than the others combined. People are rear- ended by drivers texting or making phone calls. Don’t text and drive. It can wait. Be safe these holidays from Kershaw, Cook & Talley.
