Safety on the Road

  • Driving During the Holidays
    The holiday season between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day is one of the nation's busiest and most dangerous times to drive.

    If you drive your children to school, the number one rule is for everyone to buckle up. The congestion of hurried buses and cars around the school can be dangerous.
  • Move Aside for Emergency Vehicles
    Every year in the United States, there are nearly 16,000 accidents involving fire rescue vehicles responding to emergencies.
  • Teen Drivers
    Nearly 4,000 drivers nationwide between the ages of 15 and 20 are killed in traffic crashes every year, the leading cause of death for this age group.
  • Low-Visibility Driving
    Learn the eight things to do while driving with low visibility.
  • Roadside Emergencies
    Minimize the potential for roadside problems by making sure that you adhere to a regular maintenance schedule for your car and never delay attending to a known or suspected problem.
  • Car Safety Seats for Infants and Small Children
    Most parents and caretakers know the importance of car seats and most drivers make sure that all children are properly restrained.
