Over the Thanksgiving holiday, many people will be traveling to visit friends and family. Here at Phillips and Lyon, we have some helpful tips to make sure you arrive at your destinations safely.
Most people who travel on the holidays will be traveling by car. Here are some tips to help you and your family remain safe on the roads this thanksgiving.
Check your vehicle before your trip to make sure it is in proper working order.
Check the tire pressure, and make sure that all fluids (break, windshield, coolant.) are all topped off.
Always buckle up, and of course, do not drive impaired.
If you plan on having a couple of drinks… Plan on staying where you are for the night, or have a designated driver lined up.
Do not drive while tired. It is another form of impairment.
Avoid distraction such as cell phones and other electronic devices. Keep your wits about you and focus on the road.
Pay attention to the speed limit. Driving too fast, or too slow can raise the possibility of a collision.
Rotate drivers if the trip is a long one. Make sure that each driver is fully awake, and ready to drive. Don’t let anyone drive too long and get too fatigued. Pull over if necessary.
Don’t tailgate people. There will be a lot of families on the road that might have small children in the car, which makes them drive slower and more cautiously. Keep a safe distance and pass them when you can safely.
Make sure your vehicles taillights, headlights, and windows are all clean for maximum visibility.
Keep your headlights on at all times. You can never be too visible.
If your car starts having problems, pull over to the nearest gas station. If you must pull over to the side of the raid, pull over as far as possible to avoid being struck by another vehicle.
Keep an emergency kit in the vehicle, which includes items such as water, snacks, a flashlight, and a first aid kit.
Have extra cash on you in case you need to get towed and make unexpected repairs.
We hope that you have safe travels, and wish you all a happy thanksgiving.

Next thing I remember is just waking up in the hospital. I had two fractured vertebrae, a broken nose, dislocated shoulder… Phillips and Lyon did come see me at the hospital, and once I was discharged, I came to see them. I actually had the opportunity to meet, and work with Gary Phillips. His experience really made a difference. Gary Phillips spent hours on my case, understanding the pain that I went through. They got the doctors to reduce their medical bills, and I know I got more money because Gary Phillips took the time to listen to me.
