Harrisburg Car Accident Lawyers: Be Safe Memorial Day Weekend

Posted on

Memorial Day traditionally marks the beginning of summer, and Memorial Day celebrations around Pennsylvania will lead to increased traffic over the long weekend and a greater risk of motor vehicle accidents. Memorial Day is also the start of what is known as the “100 deadliest days” on American roads. Fatal traffic accident rates are highest in the summer, particularly for teen drivers. Alcohol plays a significant role in Memorial Day car accidents. The three-day weekend has one of the highest rates of alcohol-related auto accident deaths. Take precautions to keep yourself and your family safe if you will be travelling this Memorial Day weekend, such as:

  • Buckle up and use appropriate child safety seats
  • Don’t drink and drive
  • Don’t text or use your cell phone while driving
  • Make sure you are well rested before driving
  • Allow plenty of travelling time
  • Do not speed
  • Drive defensively
  • Use a designated driver if you are drinking
