As Alabama residents prepare for the approaching Christmas and New Years Eve holidays, Alabama Department of Transportation officials are urging drivers to be safe. Every year during the winter holiday season thousands of Alabamans travel to spend time with family and friends. Drivers who fail to abide by traffic laws and employ safe driving practices increase the likelihood of being involved in a serious or fatal car accident.
With the Thanksgiving holiday behind us, many Alabama residents are on the search for the perfect Christmas tree. Whether residents chose to cut their own tree or purchase an already cut tree, in order to prevent being involved in an accident, it's important to ensure a tree is properly and securely transported.
