Preparing for Christmas: 12 Tips for Driving Safely in Las Vegas

Las Vegas is famous for its elaborate Christmas decorations and “go big or go home” displays. Each year, competing casinos provide guests with extravagant holiday attractions, exciting performances, and special exhibits. It’s no wonder that traffic is a little dangerous around Christmas time! Whether you’re traveling across the city to visit family or touring the Strip for bright lights and adventures, it’s important to exercise caution when you’re driving.

To help you stay safe this Christmas, the Las Vegas car accident attorneys at Bernstein & Poisson have prepared the following safety tips to protect both drivers and pedestrians:

  1. Observe local traffic regulations
  2. Keep a careful eye out for jaywalkers and pedestrians darting into the street
  3. Watch out for people wearing dark clothing or costumes
  4. Get enough sleep to avoid driver fatigue
  5. Never drive while intoxicated
  6. Respect other drivers
  7. Don’t use your cell phone while driving
  8. Drive slowly to avoid pedestrians—especially at night
  9. Even if the Strip is bright, make sure your headlights are on if it’s dark
  10. Avoid aggressive driving behaviors, including: tailgating, speeding, and weaving through traffic
  11. Never use cruise control
  12. Make sure your gas tank is full
