Travel Safe During The Holiday Season Chaos

Millions of Americans plan to travel during the holiday season, starting in late November for Thanksgiving all the way up until the New Year in early January. These travel plans indicate that there will be significantly more vehicles on the road, increasing the risk of driving accidents. If you plan to travel via car for the holidays, here are a few tips to keep in mind while driving to help you and your family stay safe.

Holiday Travel Driving Tips

  • Get basic maintenance done before your travel to ensure your car is in good working condition for a road trip.
  • Make sure your heating system and defrost are working so you can keep the car a comfortable temperature and eliminate any visibility issues.
  • Check the weather before you leave and along the way to avoid possible winter storms.
  • GPS your route to find the quickest way and to avoid traffic or backups.
  • Let friends or family know when you plan to travel and the route you plan to take.
  • Pack an emergency kit and emergency supplies to keep in your car just in case there is an accident.
  • Avoid driving on the busiest travel days (the day before/after Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years).
  • Keep your kids busy with games and toys so they aren’t a distraction.
  • Always wear your seat belt.
  • Follow the rules of the road.
  • Don’t speed.
  • Make sure you are well-rested. It is recommended that you take a break every two hours or 100 miles you travel.

I recently brought my car in to have the broken passenger window replaced. The guys at Frank’s were very professional and the prices were good compared to other places. I’d recommend to anyone. Thanks guys!

Couldn't ask for a better establishment! I been driving around with a cracked windshield for longer than I should have. Finally had am off day and dropped them off my car. I was running late to pick up the car and they were very accommodating. Some places would make you wait until next day. Reasonable straightforward prices. They have gained a customer for life.

Once again, frank’s auto glass came through. The price was exceptional the service was great, I would highly recommend anybody who needs class work, Should come here. I’ve done business with Frank and his family for many years, and I always leave satisfied. They don’t make them like this anymore. So five stars in Bravo.

Frank’s was great. They didn’t have my windshield in stock and had to order one, but they were ready for me the next day. The work was completed very quickly, and the staff were all friendly. The price was fair. Would go back again if necessary!

I am extremely happy with the service I received from Frank's Auto Glass Repair. The replacement took a few hours because of the business' excellent service that it is first come first served. I have nothing but good things to say about this business. I pray I do not need another one anytime soon but I will definitely refer family and friends for premier services!
