Boxing Day Driving Tips

Boxing Day Driving Tips

Whether you are planning to go shopping on Boxing Day or just finding a way around all of the other shoppers, driving can be quite a challenge. You have to keep a cool head and be patient to survive. Follow these tips to help you continue to be a safe, sane driver even on one of the busiest shopping days of the year.

Remember the Rules

Remember to follow the rules of the road even if you are only driving through a parking lot looking for a place to park. Not only is it courteous to other drivers, it lets them know your intentions to avoid an accident.

  • Always use your signal light, even when waiting for a parking space.
  • Allow plenty of room between you and the car in front of you.
  • Don’t wait until the last minute to put on your brakes.
  • Don’t talk on your cell phone or look at a map while driving.

Stay calm even when other drivers do things that irritate you. Don’t let their actions make you less courteous and calm. Instead, focus on being the nice driver that follows proper etiquette in all situations. By following the rules of the road and having a pleasant, patient attitude, you can stay safe and enjoy the busy day.
