Best Ways to Stay Safe on the Road During the Holidays

Here is a bit of information sure to scare some of the holiday cheer right out of you. On the average day, about 100 Americans die in car accidents. That is a tragic number, as every single one of them can be considered an otherwise preventable death by people following traffic laws, paying better attention to the road and designating a driver as needed. Here is where this statistic grows sad: On Thanksgiving, that number is five times higher.

Holidays make driving dangerous. Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years Eve and the days immediately surrounding the actual holidays are the biggest traffic times of the year. With everyone on the road, it is not surprising that the risk of car accidents go up.

This is all reason why it is essential that you are precautions and take steps to stay safe as you are on the road this holiday season. Here are a few ways you can do this:

  • Designate a driver: Holiday celebrations are great, but the drive home can be dangerous if the driver has been drinking. Take advantage of hired Bay Area transportation to get you home safely. This way none of your friends have to refrain from the fun.
  • Hire a shuttle: Keep the fun going on the road with a Bay Area party bus. This gives you and your friends the chance to continue enjoying yourselves as you get home safely.
  • Slow down on the road: During the holiday season, expect the unexpected. Pay close attention to the road and the speed limit so you don’t find yourself in an accident.
  • Wear your seat-belt: In most cases, when accidents do happen on the roads they do not have to be fatal. Wearing your seatbelt will keep you safe in case of the worst.

Throughout the holiday season there are a lot of Grinches on the road. Be cautious of this and don’t let any of them take you down with their road rage! Stay out of the way of cars that are speeding past you and don’t engage in any aggressive driving behavior. If you are uncomfortable near another driver on the road, slow down or pull over until they have passed you and then travel on again.

Safety first should be your number one priority during the holiday travel season. By being cautious on the road, we hope you can have a safe, happy and healthy holiday!

5 Times you should Always Hire a Limo

There are some nights when a pint of ice cream and a good book are all you need to have the best night of your life. Other times, a bit more planning is involved. Hiring a limousine can turn an ordinary night into an extraordinary night, and take the normal out of any weeknight or weekend that you plan together with friends and family.

Expectations can make or break an event. When you are expecting the world and receive just a sliver, you are not likely to be thrilled with the result. There are some who use this as a reason to not get overly excited about events, leaving them perpetually pleasantly surprised.

Of course, there are some nights that are meant to be extraordinary. Life events and large parties are planned with a huge expectation of fun and memories, and it isn’t reasonable to lower your expectations just to lessen the chance of your hopes being dashed. There are a few things you can do to help those nights live up to the greatest of your expectations. Like, for example, hiring a limousine.

Consider the way a limo can make these five life experiences that much more enjoyable:

1. Your wedding: There may be no other night as meaningful as your wedding. This is one night when it makes sense to let someone else take care of the traffic, and you can focus on enjoying yourself. Your wedding night, the morning after your wedding and even the rehearsal dinner can all be made more enjoyable by a limousine.

2. Your reunion: Whether it is for high school or college, showing up in a limousine sends a message of success. Let people talk about you–that is what going to those reunions is all about.

3. For travel: Heading out of town, out of state or out of the country? Taking a limousine to the airport comes with serious benefits. You won’t have to pay for long-term parking, you’ll have serious space for your luggage and won’t have to rely on a friend for a ride.

4. Wine tours: It is a shame to live in California and not take advantage of the many vineyards in the area. Wine tours are a great way to spend time with friends and family while enjoying your community. Don’t drive yourself to one of these events. Keep everyone together and safe by traveling in a limo.

5. Ladies night: You’ve got all of your friends together and you are heading out on the town. Hiring a limousine will make this night like no other. You won’t need a designated driver, you won’t need to worry about parking and you won’t need to think twice about getting home safe. It is all taken care of, and you can rest assured you’ll get into any club you arrive at as you step out of your limo and into the time of your life.
