It’s no secret that accidents increase during the Holidays. The National Safety Council (NSC) estimates that 450 people may die on U.S. roads this Memorial Day holiday period. This could be due to the sheer number of vacationers packing the roads or the Holiday business creates more distractions causing more accidents. It may be a combination of the two, but people should be careful as they are driving during the holidays.
Whether traveling to put your toes in the sand or heading across town to see a movie, the weekend of holidays can cause an increase in traffic accidents. As aware drivers, we can do some things to minimize the accidents on the roadway like putting your phone down to avoid distractions and avoid driving while intoxicated. Also, wearing your seat belt is imperative to ensuring your safety should you get into an accident in traffic. By doing our part to minimize the risk we can help lower the number of people hurt or killed on the roadways.
