Will you be traveling long distances for Thanksgiving this year? All Americans know that the day before Thanksgiving is the most traveled day of the year. With that in mind, it is safe to say that a refresher course on driving safety is needed; no matter what age! Our North Carolina insurance agency has a few tips to share about driving safety this season…

-Watch your speeding. Yes, we understand you are hungry and looking forward to seeing the family but refrain from driving too fast.

-If you will be traveling far, split up driving duty to avoid getting too tired.

-Refrain from texting and driving. If your cousin texts you asking where you are, have another person in the car take care of texting back.

-Plan your route ahead of time. Make sure you leave early to beat the traffic and know exactly where you are going. If you need to reset your GPS, pull over and do so.

-Make sure to buckle up. This may sound simple, but in 2008 many Americans did not do this. At least 67% of auto fatalities during Thanksgiving weekend were due to no seat belt.

-Make sure you are covered with reliable auto insurance before hitting the road. You never know what will happen on the open road.

-If you have been drinking, make sure you sober up before heading home. If you are still buzzing, plan on spending the night.

-Keep your cool. There are sure to be aggressive drivers around this time of year. However, just let them pass you. Never compete with other drivers out of spite.

With these few tips, you could be avoiding the worst case scenario this season. The roads are unpredictable during the holiday season, especially Thanksgiving weekend. However, if something does go wrong, your auto insurance will kick in. Be sure to speak with our North Carolina insurance agency about our policy. We offer a few different options when it comes to auto insurance, including: bodily injury liability, medical or personal injury protection, comprehensive, collision and uninsured motorist coverage. It is better to be safe than sorry.

Happy Thanksgiving and travels!
