Despite rising gas prices, AAA predicts more than 38 million people will take to the road this Memorial Day Weekend, marking the highest number of travelers in over a decade. If you will be among those traveling 50+ miles from home this weekend, please exercise caution and allow additional time to get to your destination. Taking time will help guard against your causing an accident and can even provide you with additional reaction time to help protect you from being involved in an accident caused by someone else.
Steps you can take to help prevent causing a car accident this Memorial Day weekend include:
- Not drinking and driving
- Avoiding all forms of distraction
- Following the speed limit
- Obeying all traffic signs and signals
- Allowing for a two to three-car gap in between your vehicle and the one in front of you
- Giving yourself additional time to arrive at your destination
These steps can help reduce your risks of being involved in an accident, though nothing is completely failsafe.
