December 2019 - Wishing You Safe Travels This Holiday Season

Wishing You Safe Travels This Holiday SeasonWhether you’re visiting family or treating yourself to a winter vacation, you’ll have plenty of company when you hit the road this holiday season. With the increase in travelers comes an increased risk of accidents, injuries and crime. Following a few simple safety tips can result in a safe – and fun – holiday.

Distracted and impaired driving top the list of dangerous practices but there are two others that round out the list of the four most dangerous holiday driving hazards according to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety: pressured driving and fatigued driving.

Pressured driving, or driving while stressed, can cause you to speed, drive aggressively, or generally disregard the rules of the road. You can reduce the added stress related to holiday travel by taking a few precautions:

  • Plan your route in advance, and plan an alternative route in the event of accidents, road work or other detours;
  • Prepare for inclement weather by practicing defensive driving and keeping a well-stocked emergency kit on hand complete with necessary tools, first aid essentials, and survival equipment like blankets, cell phone chargers and water.

Fatigued driving is another common danger, especially this time of year. Studies show that drivers with 6 to 7 hours of sleep are twice as likely to be involved in an accident than someone who has had 8 or more hours of sleep. That risk is more than doubled for drivers with five or less hours of sleep. If you’re going on a long road trip, make sure you leave plenty of time for rest stops along the way.

Other ways to reduce your holiday travel risks:

  • Avoid stopping on the roadside if possible; inspect and service your car, particularly your tires, before leaving.
  • If someone signals a problem with your car or taps you from behind, resist the urge to stop immediately; instead, proceed to a nearby service station or some other populated spot.
  • Fill your gas tank while there’s still daylight.
  • Choose well-lit, well-traveled streets, especially if you’re unfamiliar with your route.

Stay safe out there.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

What Our Clients are Saying

The absolute BEST!!! I have a family of attorneys but needed someone local. Victor was recommended to me and words cannot describe how pleased I was with his firm. The outstanding service and attention each member of his staff gave to me surpassed any and all expectations. Victor surrounds himself with a hardworking team that he leads. I felt it was money spent wisely. I will continue to recommend Victor and his associates.

Mr. Rotolo has helped me numerous times in legal matters and has continued to support and help me through countless hardships. He is dedicated to providing the best service and is a true professional. I will continue to consult with him regarding any legal issues in the future. He is a respectable, hardworking, kind hearted man and I would recommend his legal services to anyone.

- Matthew

I am an attorney and have practiced law for 26 years. I hired Vic to handle a very difficult family matter because I do not handle family law. Vic was extremely competent and obtained a result far beyond my expectations. Without his counsel my son's and family's life would have been changed forever. Thank you Vic for your good lawyering. I very much appreciate the personal attention and time dedicated to this matter. I highly recommend Vic.

- Anthony

We recently had a situation where we needed to hire an attorney. We selected Kearns Rotolo Law and I can honestly say that we were above and beyond satisfied with Vic and his team. We would absolutely recommend this firm to anyone should the need arise. We blindly picked the firm out of the phone book because I liked his ad. Now I believe that God was pointing us in the right direction. Thank you Vic and Kearns Rotolo Law for being there for us in our time of need.

- Kim

Victor's expertise, due diligence, and empathy for his client made my first experience with the law (and last) a non-stressful one. Before the case, I did my research and looked over about 20 lawyers before choosing Victor. All my sources pointed to him as the best and they weren't off even a bit. Victor treated my case like it was his own and kept me up to date with all my appointments, breakthroughs in the case, and guided me step through step in a process that I never thought that I had to come to endure. If Victor's not available Susy will go out of her way to take care you. The productivity and efficiency in that office is second to none. Thank you Victor!
