Carabin Shaw P.C Shares Safe Driving Tips To Help San Antonians Get Home This Holiday Season

San Antonio, Texas-based Carabin Shaw P.C. would like to highlight a few safe driving tips that might help keep San Antonio drivers and pedestrians safe. The holiday season is perhaps the busiest time of the year, with millions of people across the country running around to prepare for the Christmas and New Year’s celebrations. Whether one is out buying gifts for loved ones or trying to get back home to them, driving around this time of the year can be a bit more dangerous, especially with the weather condition. Carabin Shaw cares about the people of San Antonio, and so the firm has a number of tips that can help reduce the likelihood of one being involved in an accident. The firm’s site can be found here:

The first thing to consider before going out is how bad traffic might be, says the firm. It is important to plan ahead and avoid rush hour whenever possible, and doing so can greatly reduce one’s chances of being involved in an accident. If, however, it is absolutely necessary to drive in traffic, once also reduce their chances of being in an accident by driving defensively in heavy traffic.

Bad weather can seriously affect one’s driving experience and has been known to increase the number of road accidents. This is why it is important to check all the local weather reports and avoid going out if the weather conditions are bad or could be bad later. Local authorities will often announce when it is best to stay off the road, and drivers who obey such directives are less likely to be involved in car accidents

Drunk or distracted driving is one of the most serious causes of driving accidents. “If you do decide to celebrate this festive season with libations, be sure to ensure that someone is the designated driver or that you have a taxi or rideshare service you can use to get home safely,” says Carabin Shaw. “Driving under the influence is the leading cause of car accidents in the United States, and you can be sure that by driving while drunk you practically double your chances of being involved in an accident. You should never drink and drive, especially not now when everyone is out on the road for one reason or another. Not only is it dangerous to drive while under the influence, if you are involved in an accident and it is found that you were under the influence of alcohol, the repercussions may be severe.”

Regular vehicle maintenance is one more thing that can help keep one safe on the roads. A well maintained vehicle is far less likely to break down unexpectedly, which makes accidents a lot less likely. Visit for more information.
