Holiday Travels – be careful out there

It’s crazy on the roadways and people scurry around to and fro, commuting and visiting, especially this time of year.

Do you know of the roadway changes and traveling rules in respective states while traveling?

Maybe we all should take a few minutes and acquaint ourselves before heading out.

Even while living in Florida I realize quite frequently how roads change and how laws apply – and I’ve lived here for most of my life.

Since age is creeping up on me, although I’m still young at heart and still healthy, I’m thinking about taking the AARP course I just came across:  http://www.aarpdriversafety.org/?intcmp=EWHERE-MBCHAE-LP-BCW2.  I also try to read various rules of the road when I can.

What about you?  How do you stay abreast of changes while traveling?

Also, don’t rely completely on the GPS.  I see daily changes in traffic patterns on roadways and the GPS can’t always keep up with them.

Know before you go and use good situation awareness.  Be aware of distracted and aggressive drivers and don’t fall prey to them.  Let’s watch our own bad habits while we’re at it.

Have you used the 511 app?

It has good traffic information.  While in Florida I use the FL511 app.  I find it useful and current.  You can find more information at http://www.fl511.com.

Be safe traveling.  I trust you experience great blessings and safe travels during this time of year.

Enjoy Life and Live!
