Driving over Memorial Day Weekend
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, an average of 400 people die in car accidents over Memorial Day weekend every year. That’s 13.1% more fatal car accidents than occur on any non-holiday weekend of the year – and enough of a risk that the NHTSA has identified Memorial Day weekend as the year’s most dangerous for motorists.

AAA estimates 37.2 million people will travel at least 50 miles from home this Memorial Day weekend. That’s almost a five percent increase over last year and the highest estimated number of travelers in the past 10. If you plan on driving this Memorial Day weekend, please take time to keep yourself, your passengers, and everyone else on the road safe.
Alcohol is a factor in 44% of Memorial Day accidents. If you are planning on drinking, don’t drive, and if you are driving, don’t drink. This simple step can help prevent your causing an accident and improve your chances of making it home safe.
