97.5 Y-Country Medical Minute – Holiday Travel Safety Tips

97.5 Y Country Medical Minute – Holiday Travel Safety Tips

Aired 12.17.2018

The Holiday Season is the #1 most dangerous travel periods of the year. This week’s Y-Country Medical Minute quickly discusses holiday travel safety tips to keep you and your loved ones safe.

Prepare Your Vehicle
Clean windows
Check your windshield wipers and replace if needed
Check all fluid, especially windshield fluid and oil
Check headlights and taillights
Rotate tires

Buckle Up
Always wear a seat belt even in the back seat
Never leave your children in their thick winter coats while buckled in their car seats. Use blankets instead to keep them warm.

Perk Up
Don’t drive tired, take breaks every 2 hours. Some may even enjoy a nice cup of coffee on their travels.

Eyes Up
Don’t Text and Drive

Drive Sober
Alcohol affects reaction time.

Stay Bright
Drive with your headlights on to increase visibility.

Relax
Give yourself extra time to avoid road rage
Slow down – speeding reduces reaction time and increases distance needed to brake.
