Avoiding Accidents and Car Crashes Over the Holidays
Our Elk Grove and Sacramento County injury attorneys wish all of you a happy holiday season. We also want you to stay safe over the winter. This time of the year brings with it holiday parties and those who overindulge in alcohol. Last January CHP reported a major rise in DUI related crashes over the holidays, this year looks no different. Avoiding accidents and car crashes over the holidays requires you to be of a sober and sound mind.
Look, this is supposed to be "the most wonderful time of the year," and it should be. However, we all need to pay extra attention to road conditions and what we are doing while driving. Holiday shoppers rushing to and from stores, family and friends visiting from out of town, and kids out of school can cause lots of abnormal traffic. Add in freezing rain and snow, icy roads, and large commercial trucks and it can spell danger.
So, what can you do to try and stay safe this holiday season? Let's take a look. Remember, our website does not provide legal advice, nor does this article provide any medical advice.

Here are some of the ways we try to stay safe during the holidays.
Never Drink and Drive
While this one seems obvious, it's not. Look, everyone likes to have fun. We are no different. Whether it's spending time with family and friends or enjoying an office holiday party, most people like to have a drink or two. Sadly, some people do not know when to stop. Worse, some people still get behind the wheel after drinking.
The United States Department of Transportation states that every year, multiple people lose their lives in holiday-related DUI crashes. If we all work together to not drive after enjoying a drink, we may be able to make the holiday season a bit safer. Likewise, if you end up being hit by a drunk driver this holiday season, we can help. Our Elk Grove car crash lawyers provide a free case review.

Make Sure Your Vehicle is Safe and in Working Order
It's wintertime. That means freezing cold winds, rain, snow, and lots of ice. It makes for a beautiful Christmas morning but horrible road conditions. Your kids see time off of school and slopes to sled on. We see dangers at every corner and accidents waiting to happen. Be prepared; that is our number one point. Make sure your vehicle is safe and in working order before you venture out onto the treacherous roads in Sacramento County.
Slow Down and Enjoy the Holiday Season
The holidays are much more than packages and presents. Slow down and enjoy the holiday season. Remember, not everyone is going to be as responsible as you. Drivers are more distracted. From focusing on gifts they need to get to even stopping to stare at Christmas lights, people tend to be a little bit preoccupied this time of the year. Don't speed, don't drive crazy, and watch out for drivers who are careless.
