Stay Safe

  • Keep an emergency kit in your vehicle in the event of car trouble or an accident.
  • Be well rested and sober any time you are behind the wheel.
  • Make sure all passengers are wearing a seat belt.
  • Obey the laws of the road.
  • Limit your distractions- put away your phone, keep music at appropriate levels, focus on the road instead of passengers in the car, etc...
  • Drive defensively- watch out for others on the road.

Being aware of your surroundings, limiting yours distractions, and driving defensively are crucial for decreasing your likelihood of being in an accident.

Think Ahead

  • Determine the most likely congested times of travel to and from your destination. Then, begin and end your travel times a few hours prior or after to reduce the time you are stuck in traffic.
  • Before heading out on the road, research alternate routes in the event of an accident or inclement weather.

By following these guidelines, you and your family can reduce your risk of an accident while traveling this Labor Day weekend. Unfortunately, it is impossible to prevent every accident and many times those involved become serious injured.
