4pm Sponsored

Another holiday season is here along with all the traffic. Add in the snow, ice and precipitation and things could get messy out there. Damian Kidd, from the Advocates, had a few tips to avoid accidents according to patterns they have seen from drivers.

Patterns of Bad Driving
-Traveling in a hurry
-Not stopping properly at intersections or hurrying through stoplights

Texting still accounts for a good number of accidents.

Slowing down and just focusing on reaching your destination might be a simple tip, but it may save you from many accidents that happen around this time of year. The weather combined with lots of traffic makes for a worse equation.

What to do in the case of an accident
-Make sure you’re safe
-When the car comes to a stop, make sure you safe and exit the vehicle if you can
-Contact law enforcement to show up and document the scene, important in order to determine who’s at fault
