Black Friday Shopping Safety Tips

Are you braving the mall this year on Black Friday? Here are a few simple steps you can take to reduce the likelihood of being involved in a motor vehicle accident with a crazed shopper:

1) Plan your day and your route the night before. This way you can print out coupons prior to leaving (instead of in the car!) and contemplate the best route to take to avoid heavy traffic areas.

2) Plug in your route into your navigation before you start driving.

3) Use extreme caution in parking lots. This means reducing your speed, remaining especially aware of children and the elderly, and driving distraction free. And never leave children or pets in a closed car. Keep these tips in mind for a safe, stress free shopping experience!
