4 Fast Tips to Help Avoid an Accident During Holiday Travel

At Peruzzi Collision Center, we know that even a mild winter can leave drivers rushing for collision repair in Bensalem, PA due to the effects that these storms have on the road that make driving more difficult. Here are three ways that snow storms can cause you to have a tougher time on the road this winter.

  • Buckle up. If you're guilty of forgetting to buckle your seatbelt before you drive, you could be putting yourself at serious risk of injury should you get into an accident. Not to mention that driving without a seatbelt is illegal in Pennsylvania. Before you head out, double check that everyone in the car is buckled up for safety!

  • Make repairs early. If you've been putting off a trip to Peruzzi Collision Center, the area’s top auto body repair shop, make sure to schedule an appointment before your holiday travels. Damage can be made worse during long trips, leaving you with a bigger bill when all is said and done.

  • Avoid checking your texts. Though most of us know that texting while driving is dangerous, a whopping 82% of Americans admit to doing it anyways. To avoid the temptation to read text messages while driving, turn your phone to silent, and keep it in a place that's out of reach, such as in your glove compartment or inside a zippered bag.

  • Distract the kids. Traveling with family members can be stressful, especially when you're constantly hearing cries of "are we there yet?!" from the backseat. If you know you've got a long drive ahead, try taking your little ones out to pick up a new book to read or handheld game to play during the ride. This will help to keep them from distracting you on the road.

This season, make sure your family stays safe on the road by getting the collision repair in Bensalem PA that you need before you leave! Give our team at Peruzzi Collision Center a call today before you travel for Thanksgiving and have a wonderful holiday!
