Staying Safe on the Roads During the Holidays 

In Lafayette, we go all out for the holidays. And rightfully so, they come around only once a year. From holiday work parties and get togethers with old friends, to spending time with our families and watching our kids make their own memories, the holidays truly are magical. Sadly, not everyone celebrates in a safe manor. Drunk and distracted drivers, people rushing to and from places, and icy weather can cause all sorts of disasters on the road. Here are some things we think you can do to help stay safe on the roads this year.

Don’t Answer That Call or Text While Driving 

Distracted drivers cause too many accidents. Every year, innocent people lose their lives in vehicle related crashes because someone was to careless to not answer a call or a text. Trust us, your family and friends can wait. Don’t text while driving, if you have to talk than use a hands free method. If a call or text is that important, find a safe place to pull over. Please, don’t risk your life of the life of an innocent person over a phone call or text message.

Check Your Tires, Vehicle Maintenance, and Carry Tire Chains 

Before you hit the road this winter check your tires, vehicle maintenance, and remember to carry tire chains. You want to make sure your vehicle is running well. In addition, you can carry extra water, a jacket, umbrella, and flashlight. The point is to make sure that you are prepared for what ever happens out on the roads. Just because we life in Louisiana, doesn’t mean it doesn’t get cold and icy. So be prepared.

Above all Else – Please Do Not DRINK & DRIVE 

Please, our entire team at Neblett, Beard & Arsenault ask you to simply not drink and drive. Yes, the holidays are a great time to enjoy family and friends. And yes, some of us will partake in adult beverages and spirits. It’s okay to enjoy yourself, but enjoy responsibly. You do not want to put yourself into a dangerous situation, or worse, hurt an innocent person because you chose to drink and drive. Call an Uber, a Lyft, a friend, anything but drive yourself intoxicated. And remember, “buzzed” driving is drunk driving. It’s not worth the risk.
