Three Tips for Surviving Holiday Traffic

by Staff Blogger | November 28th, 2016

The Thanksgiving turkey leftovers are all but gone, the Christmas music is already playing on local stations, and malls are gearing up for the onslaught of tens of thousands of shoppers. It must be Christmas time in Nashville.

With the season comes increased congestion on our roads. Here are 3 tips for surviving holiday traffic:

  1. Leave early. With all the December events in Nashville, it’s always a good idea to plan for a few extra minutes on the road. Leave 10-15 minutes early when going to a congested area. It’s worth arriving a few minutes early than a few minutes late.
  2. Seek alternate routes. If you’ve lived in Nashville during the holiday season, you know which areas are going to get the most congested. Seek alternate routes to avoid the heavy traffic spots.
  3. Be merry…and patient. Chances are, in the coming month, you’re going to sit in traffic at one point or another. Try to stay positive and be patient. Getting frustrated and stressed won’t get you to your destination one minute faster.
