The silly season is coming, it gets that moniker for a reason. People get all silly, do stupid things like drink and drive. Every year there is a serious death toll on our highways and byways. Now the safest thing is to just not go out in your car, but that is not particularly practical. The next safest thing is to make sure that you do not drink and then drive. At all. However the other road users may not be so considerate, in fact you can bet that there will be deaths on the roads this silly season regardless of how careful you are. So what can you do to minimise the risks.
Traditionally there is a spike of road accidents over the holiday periods. It happens every year. Each year the campaigns to make driving during the silly season safer get better, but there will always be some idiot out there who cares even less about your life than they do about their own. Many people like to get away for the holidays, take that trip down to the coast, escape the coast and head inland. It is not practical to just stay indoors, even though that may be the safest place during the holidays. So if you have to venture out make sure that you are as careful as you can be.
If you are going to be out on the roads during the holiday period you could not do worse that to look at your life insurance or funeral cover. It may seem rather bleak and desolate to look at your holidays this way but the fact is the roads are not safe, so rather make sure that you are covered in the event of an accident. Get your car and home insurance up to date. No-one really wants to deal with things like these especially when it is supposed to be the time for having fun and relaxing but the roads are dangerous and you should do all that you can to make sure that in the appalling even of an accident you are covered.
