Auto safety tips for Memorial Day Weekend

If you can’t believe that Memorial Day weekend is upon us…believe it. Yes, 2015 appears to be flying by, and with the unofficial beginning of summer this weekend, the summer driving season also begins with earnest.

Keep in mind that a greater number of people will be on the road this weekend. It is estimated that more than 30 million people will travel at least 50 miles away from their homes. With more people on the road, the greater the potential for accidents. So drivers must beware.  This post will provide some helpful tips as you plan your getaway. 

Stay cool while behind the wheel – With all the cars on the road (especially on Friday), and traffic being heavy, you can expect hot-tempered, ornery drivers who may be ready to take revenge if you upset them.  At the same time, these drivers may get under your skin. Resist the urge to retaliate.  

Be aware of distracted drivers – You probably have heard of a national (or regional) campaign against distracted driving, but people will likely still use their cell phones while behind the wheel.  If you see someone texting or paying more attention to their phone than the road, stay away from them.

Stay alert – During this weekend, people will try to burn the candle at both ends and try to drive longer without much rest. It will not be surprising for people to try to get as much out of the weekend as possible with a Red Bull or Rockstar Energy Drink. While this may work for some people, it is best to switch drivers or simply take a break.
