This has law enforcement officials pondering what can be done to raise traffic safety awareness during this critical driving period. Trooper LB. Strider, Public Information Officer for the Texas Department of Public Safety stated, "We lmow that the potential for injury and loss of life is greater during holiday periods, especially a high-volume holiday like Thanksgiving. We are asking motorists to drive defensively." Many motorists have heard the term "defensive driving"; how- ever, it seems few know what it in- volves. "Much of the art of defen- sive driving comes from common sense andyour own instinct. Train- ing and knowledge of the proper procedure make these senses more effective," Snider explained. Defensive driving can and should become a way of life for all drivers regardless of age or ex- perience. Don't assume the other driver will make the right decision. Be prepared for anything. Defen- Thursday, November 24, sive drivers are in tune with their minds and bodies, as well as the road. They're ready for any situa- tion the road might hand them. But some drivers are out of tune. They give in to distractions, daydreams, fatigue, anger, stress, frustration or perhaps alcohol. They are not prepared to react when a dangerous situation arises. Defensive drivers also make fewer mistakes. Drivers on the average make one error for every two miles they travel. While not every mistake leads to an accident, about 85% of all collisions are the result of driver error. "The most common mistake is probably speeding. Most people don't match an appropriate speed with driving conditious,"Snider added. Once again, State Troopers will be highly visible during the Thanksgiving holiday trying to make the roads as safe as possible. Let's all do our part to make this a safe and happy holiday Thanksgiving Safety Tips ASyOU trave, l this holiday be sure to observe all traffic laws. Traffic will be heavy so beware of all drivers on the road. After eating Thanksgiving Dinner take a nap before you start on the road; studies show" that 1% of Thanksgiving deaths are due to drowsy drivers. Have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving. Clarendon Student Council. Winter Safety Tips Trooper L.B. Snider, Public Information Officer for the Texas Department of Public Safety said, "Winter driving is more haz- ardous than most people realize. There are more hours of darkness, often less visibility, and sometimes freezing temperatures with ice, sleet or snow. These are real chal- lenges for drivers and test a person's ability to drive." "Safe winter driving, it's all said and done application of common sense come basic driving facts," added. "Drivers must be able see all around their vehicles drive safely. Make sure all ice snow is removed from all Don't be a "peep hole" Keep windows from fogging using the defroster. If stop and knock ice or snow wiper blades to keep windshield clear." Too much speed on roads is the most trouble. Adjust your habits to match the weather road conditions. Trips on" are going to take longer. Face facts, don't be in a hurry. If road is covered with ice or start your vehicle moving and gently. When stopping, your breaks lightly and much lier than usual. Make your slowly and smoothly. Most loss of control comes the form of skids. Skids don't: happen, they are caused by driver in most eases. To from a skid, back off the celerator, stay of the brakes steer your vehicle in the you want to go. It is obvious that drivers can pose the most experienced drivers. as stated above, if we take our take it easy, make smooth ments and adjust speed to conditions, we all can have a winter.
