As the holidays approach, DeKalb County reported 21 motor vehicle accidents and Fulton County reported 76.

Avoid getting stranded on the side of the road or becoming a victim of a traffic accident by cleaning all of your vehicle’s windows, checking oil and coolant levels, evaluating tire pressure or rotating your tires before your journey begins.
Get Enough Sleep
Resist the urge to rely on coffee or caffeinated power drinks to keep you alert and awake. These beverages only serve to increase anxiety and nervous tension. Get a good night’s rest before traveling to ensure that you are naturally ready for the road.
Plan your route well in advance and leave earlier if necessary to make your destination on time. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety reports that nearly one-third of all fatal collisions involve vehicles that were exceeding the speed limit at the time of impact. Better late and safe than becoming involved in a collision and needing to contact an Alpharetta car accidents attorney.
Monitor Weather Forecasts
The fall season often brings fog, wind, freezing temperatures and precipitation, which make roads hazardous. The Federal Highway Administration reports that more than 20 percent of traffic accidents are weather-related. Whether traveling across town, across the state or across country, know what to expect in terms of weather and prepare to drive accordingly.
Eat Light and Stay Awake
Consuming a heavy meal before driving may lead to feeling drowsy or sleepy while on the road. Regardless of the time of day, eat a light meal, take snacks and beverages. Graze along the way. Save the need to indulge your appetite until after arriving at your destination.
Remember that in addition to passenger vehicles, trucks and perhaps motorcycles may also be present on the road. Stay out of blind spots and allow enough distance between your vehicle and others to ensure safe braking if needed
