The Ford of Kirkland team knows you want to safely travel this holiday season, and we are eager to share just a few of our essential tips for traveling safely this season.
Seasonal Holiday Travel Tips
- Before you hit the highway, make sure to schedule a seasonal service appointment for your Ford vehicle. With cooler temperatures and winter precipitation imminent, your vehicle could benefit from a routine check-up.
- Food, fun, and family are not the only things you can expect this holiday season. Fatigue can threaten drivers at any time of year. If you start to feel drowsy, find a safe place to pull over and either switch out driving duties or make sure to get a nap! Remember: Alert driving is safe driving.
- Make use of your Ford’s safety innovations to help alert you to any potential driving hazards you may encounter this holiday season. Many modern cars feature built-in safety technologies to help monitor blind spots, assist with parking, and more.
- Think before you drink! The winter travel season serves as a time of celebration, but it can also become a time of mourning. Use your best judgment, whether that means calling a taxi service, carpooling with a designated driver, or making overnight arrangements.
