Summer is just around the corner, and along with it comes some of our favorite holidays. Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day are all prime times for road trips. But while you’re focused on fun, don’t forget to stay safe. Here are four summer holiday road safety tips from the auto insurance agencies at Gill Insurance in Rock Hill, SC and Gill-Holler Insurance in Fort Mill, SC.
- Wear a seat belt – No matter what, always wear a seat belt. In fact, wait to crank your car until everyone in the vehicle is wearing a seat belt. There’s no doubt about it – seat belts save lives.
- Put away all distractions – Distracted driving is on of the biggest hazards on today’s roads. Texting, eating, putting on makeup, and other activities take your attention away from the only place it needs to be – the road.
- Follow speed limits – Speed limits are designed to provide maximum safety for everyone on the road. For example, a sharp turn may require drivers to drive slower in order to make the turn safely.
- Do not drink and drive – Do not drive after drinking alcohol. It puts you, your passengers, and other people on the road in great danger.
