Drive Safely Over Memorial Day Holiday

Last updated 6 years ago

The National Safety Council estimates for the past six years, the Memorial Day holiday weekend has averaged an 11.5% increase in traffic fatalities compared to similar non-holiday periods.  If statistics hold true, there will be 420 traffic fatalities and over 42,000 accidents which require medical attention.  

To ensure a safe Memorial Day holiday weekend, NSC recommends drivers:
  • Refrain from all cell phone use behind the wheel
  • Make sure all passengers are buckled up and children are in age-appropriate safety seats
  • All children 12 and under should always be in the back seat
  • Allow plenty of travel time to avoid frustration and diminish the impulse to speed
  • Drive defensively and exercise caution, especially during inclement weather
  • Avoid driving while drowsy
  • Designate a “non-drinking” driver – even moderate consumption of alcohol impairs reaction time and driving judgment

From all of us at McCready, Garcia & Leet, please drive safely!  If you are in a car accident, please call us for a free consultation at (773) 779-9885.
