PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – There are lots of people out on the road today traveling to see relatives and ready to enjoy food and drink. The drink is always a potential concern especially when so many people are out on the road.

The first point is obvious: don’t drink and drive. If you think about it, you could be putting your family and the families of others at great risk. But even if you are not drinking alcohol you need to worry about others. Make sure you are alert and aware but also make certain everybody in the family is in seatbelts or car seats.

This shouldn’t cause stress but just keep it in mind.
