Drive Safely This Thanksgiving


Have your vehicle checked before you drive it a long distance for Thanksgiving.
Take your vehicle into your local auto shop and have everything checked out. For example, they can check your oil to make sure it is at the proper level, your tires to make sure they have the correct amount of pressure, and your transmission fluid to make sure you have enough. Having your vehicle checked out ahead of time can save you a ton of car trouble while on the road on your way to an important family holiday gathering.

Pack road trip entertainment for your children.
Kids can get bored just sitting in a back seat for hours and they could possibly distract you from your driving. Avoid this by keeping them entertained with DVDs, card games, iPhone games, Kindle books, etc.

Secure your pets.
If you plan to bring your pets this Thanksgiving, make sure you secure them so they can't run throughout the vehicle distraction you from your driving. Look into pet car seats or place them in a kennel.

Pack snacks for the family.
Many restaurants will be closed for the holiday so be sure to bring snacks for your kids for the trip. Well-fed children can be less likely to distract you then hangry children.

Avoid distractions.
Keep off your cell phone, avoid eating while driving, do not smoke while driving, and most certainly do not groom yourself while driving. These are all good examples of things that can cause major car accidents.
