Lithia Auto Stores offers a number of tips on its website to help keep holiday traffic headaches to a minimum this upcoming season.
The best way to avoid issues is to plan ahead, before travel day. Download an app that shows traffic alerts such as slow traffic, road closures and potentially dangerous road conditions due to weather or construction. If your travel plans include driving through major metropolitan areas, plan the drives for night, well beyond rush hour, to avoid peak traffic congestion.
Less-traveled roads near airports are also a great option to avoid traffic caused by so many others driving to and from the airport on the main roadways.
Make sure everything on your car is in good working order and that all fluids are topped off before your trip, too. Lithia's dealership service stations, located in many states in central and western areas of the United States, can give your vehicle a complete safety inspection before the holidays.
