Officials urge safety during holidays
By Scott Sticker
With the pressure of deciding on a perfect present, frantically shopping for it and delivering it to a loved one on time, a person can become a tired, stressed-out safety hazard to themselves and others.Around the holiday season, certain measures should be observed to keep yourself and others safe.
New Braunfels Police Department spokesman Lt. Michael Penshorn said paying attention is paramount in personal safety.“When you’re shopping or in a crowded store, always keep an eye on your purse or belongings,” Penshorn said. “There are lots of individuals out there just looking for the right opportunity to snatch something.”
Target manager Shelly Baranowski said child safety is a big issue, too.“Keep your children strapped in the cart and make sure they’re safe,” Baranowski said. “Don’t leave them unattended.”She also advised against leaving stores alone at night and recommended shopping with groups of people.
Penshorn said it is wise to park your car in a well-lit spot if it is after dark and not to leave valuables in your car.After picking out the perfect gift and wrapping it with care, the presents have to be delivered — Santa Claus can’t do all the work, after all.
With the increase in travel, more safety measures should be considered.Texas Department of Public Safety Public Information officer Travis Hall said State Troopers will be out in force ensuring that safety precautions are being observed.“Over Christmas and New Year’s, we will have every available trooper working the streets managing the flow of traffic,” Hall said.
He said those troopers will be looking for unsafe drivers, including people speeding, driving recklessly and drinking while driving. He said they will also be enforcing seat-belt laws“We will be looking for all kinds of contributing factors to dangerous driving,” Hall said. “We’re going to try to make it as safe as we can out there.”
