Enjoy a Safe Holiday Season

The holidays are a great time for family and friends to create new memories and carry on traditions. This year’s holidays are right around the corner and many continue to plan on traveling all around the country. According to Bankrate, despite the inflated prices of gas and other goods, families are planning to drive to their destinations this year compared to biting the cost of flights. With the will to get away for the holidays continuing to rise, travelers are adjusting their expectations this year to keep costs down. Barnes & Cohen encourages our community to travel safe to reach their destinations, especially with more drivers on the road. With more drivers on the road, there is a higher probability of an accident occurring. If you are injured in an auto accident, seek help as soon as possible.

In a survey conducted by Bankrate, “Seventy-Seven percent of holiday travelers are making adjustments”.  Ted Rossman, a senior analyst at Bankrate also stated “They don’t want to skip the trip entirely. They’re willing to drive instead of fly. They’re willing to stay in cheaper accommodations or pick cheaper activities.”

If your family is planning on traveling during this holiday season, Barnes & Cohen is a phone call away if things turn awry.

  • Drive at a safe speed
  • Don’t follow drivers too closely
  • Check your tire’s tread and pressure
