Big holidays tend to be quite accident-prone. You have more people on the roads going to places. The cars tend to be fuller, as the families drive together. There also tends to be a bit more stress in these circumstances. Winter is associated with winter conditions, even though you don’t have snow and ice. If you do, then you need to make sure that you have winter use approved tires mounted on the car before you start filling up the car with people. Also maintain your distance to the cars in front of you as well as adjust speed.
If there is a lot of snow and ice where you drive, try to make sure that you have a proper set of studded tires mounted on your car. Winter tires are what you will need if there are winter conditions. If your winter is warm, then you might get by with just having summer tires on your car, but then you need to be ready to leave the car standing if you would face real winter conditions or winter temperatures.
