According to statistics Labor Day can be one of the worst as far as hazardous travel. My guess is, it is the last hurrah before school, fall and other things take over! Also, the long weekend allows people to travel a little more. Everyone wants to get in their last summer picnic or cookout, their last trip to visit friends and family or they simply want to enjoy one more long weekend. Many do it right at home, but others want to travel a bit.
So, if you are one of those traveling anywhere this weekend take a few extra precautions. Give yourself a little extra travel time due to traffic. Drive a little slower and stay alert. Avoid high traffic cities if possible. And of course stay away from the alcohol. Drunk drivers cause many of the accidents. Have fun on your trip, but keep it safe.

So if you do travel this holiday weekend, stay safe and enjoy! See you back here soon!
