Drive safely this holiday season and avoid a crash

With several holidays just around the corner, we wanted to use this time to wish our Galveston County readers a happy and safe rest of 2015. This time of the year means drivers rushing home to see their families, out of state drivers who are unfamiliar with the area, and get-togethers that could include the consumption of alcohol. This is a dangerous mix for drivers in Texas. But if you're reading this post, you may be prepared for the weeks ahead.

The most important thing our readers can do to avoid a serious or fatal crash this upcoming holiday season is to be constantly aware of your surroundings. Things like getting enough sleep, avoiding cellphone use behind the wheel, and constantly being aware of how close you are to other vehicles are all great ways of avoiding collisions and potentially catastrophic injuries.

Another thing our readers can do this holiday season is to remember that there are some who continue to drive while intoxicated – an incredibly dangerous behavior that is responsible for hundreds of deaths on Texas roads every month. Be aware of the time and when more drunk drivers are likely to be out on the roadways. Try to avoid these times, if at all possible. If you have to travel during this time and suspect another driver of driving while intoxicated, steer clear of them and remember to report this to the proper authorities.

Keep in mind too the amount of freight that gets shipped cross country in large commercial vehicles. In the upcoming weeks, more large trucks will be out in force, creating more possibilities for collisions with these behemoths of the road.

By taking a proactive approach to driving, we hope our readers can avoid becoming a crash statistic in the New Year. But if a crash does occur, we want drivers to know our law firm is here for you and can help with a personal injury claim.
