The crisp air is creeping upon us once more. Not only does this mean that the Salt Lake City streets will be filled with students, but also football season, Oktoberfest and holiday shopping are just around the corner. When the streets are filled with joy and people, how can you guarantee safety while navigating in your car? Do you have a trusted lawyer on speed dial in case the worst were to happen?
Believe it or not, there is a downside to the fun of football and tailgating — the traffic. You’ve got an increase in people on the sidewalks along with a number of routes blocked off that will turn your 15 minute commute into a 45 minute standstill.
To avoid an auto accident, plan ahead by taking alternate routes. If you’re new to the city this one may be a little harder. However, ask for help from the city natives. There is always more than one way to get to where you’re going.
Use Public Transit
UTA will often do the planning ahead for you. Public transit workers prepare for busy days in Utah with longer trains and more frequent stops. If you’re on a time crunch, utilize the timeliness of the buses and Trax system to get where you’re going. Avoid the possibility of an auto accident by putting your safety into the hands of the trusty public transit drivers.
This means something different to every driver on the road. There are a few things you can do to avoid the hassle of calling your lawyer after an auto accident. Avoid turning left on busy roads. In doing so, you can avoid having to drive over a crosswalk that will be filled with bystanders.
Do your best to keep your speed down, even if you’re in a rush. Always remember that having a trusty lawyer on your side is the best defense during the busy season.
