By December 24, 2014In The News


You’ve shopped for friends and family. Now it is time to shop for great deals for yourself. Boxing Day can be quite an adventure. Make it safe and fun with these tips to help you get where you need to go and back home again.

Start Early

Set your alarm well before you really want to wake up if you want to get the best deals. You will also be more likely to get a close parking spot for all of the great bargains you found. You won’t spend as much time looking for a space to park as if you wait until the crowds get started.

Pay Attention

You will discover numerous distracted shoppers who don’t pay attention when the traffic lights change or when it is their turn to walk. They will be even less likely to notice oncoming cars in a parking lot. Those distracted shoppers turn into distracted drivers and may not look when they are backing out of a parking space.

Defensive driving is important every day of the year, but it is essential to survive Boxing Day. Always leave plenty of room between you and the car in front of you. Watch for indications of what the other driver is going to do. He or she may not use the signal light when turning or may wait until the last second to put on the brakes. Pay attention to your own driving and don’t get frustrated with others.

With these great tips, you have the secrets to having a fun day out with the crowds on Boxing Day. Redwater Dodge wishes you a safe and fun holiday season and don’t forget to save some of your shopping for a new car.
