AAA Memorial Day Travel Forecast
Memorial Day Weekend, defined as Thursday through Monday, is always busy. The first of the major warm-weather holidays, Memorial Day offers people a chance to get out and enjoy time with friends and family. And according to AAA Travel, a projected 36.1 million Americans will journey 50 miles or more from home to do just that.
AAA Travel suggests that eight in ten travelers will be driving this Memorial Day Weekend. That means a larger number of cars on the road at any given time – a factor that can increase the risk for car accidents. Sadly, some people will choose to drink and drive this weekend as well, further increasing risks for everyone else on the road.
The Vermont car accident lawyers at Van Dorn & Curtiss strongly encourage drivers to practice increased safety this weekend. Take your time to get to your destination, avoid distractions such as texting, and never drive after drinking. This can help prevent your causing an accident and harming yourself and others.
Sadly, your precaution cannot prevent others from making poor decisions. If you are injured due to someone else’s negligence this weekend, we are here to take your case and help you get the compensation you are due.
