How to Avoid Serious Injuries this Black Friday

Black Friday is the busiest shopping day of the year. However, if you plan on heading out to take advantage of the sales and deals, you’ll want to be careful, too. With overcrowded malls and more people out on the roads – injuries are not uncommon. These tips will help you enjoy a safer shopping day.

Drive Carefully

If you are heading out for midnight sales – drive carefully! There will be a lot of people on the roads rushing for holiday deals. Be mindful of the increased traffic. Make sure that your headlights are on and that you are extra aware of your surroundings.

Watch Your Step

Look out for wet surfaces or dropped items in stores. Slip and fall hazards tend to increase on busy shopping days! As you are walking from the parking lot to the store, be careful and look out for other drivers who may not see you as they rush to find a spot.

Stay Alert

Unfortunately, with so many people shopping out late at night, you may be at a higher risk of an assault. Be careful and conscious of where you are walking with your Black Friday purchase.
