According to an article recently posted on USA Today, Labor Day weekend
is one of the busiest weekends on the road. It is also one of the deadliest
times for traffic fatalities. In fact, the
National Safety Council(NSC) estimates that there will be 405 deaths and 40,500 car accident injuries
this Labor Day weekend in the U.S.
Goodman Acker would like to remind everyone to be safe this weekend if
you are planning on getting on the road. Our
Michigan car accident lawyers see the tragic outcomes of auto accidents every day, and as an effort
to keep the roadways safe, we would like to share with you some safe driving
tips to keep you and your family safe this Labor Day weekend. These tips
were provided by the NSC.
- Drive alert and exercise extreme caution at all times.
- Allow plenty of travel time to discourage speeding and frustration.
- Ensure children are in properly installed safety seats appropriate for
- Enforce a distraction-free zone for drivers. This includes cell phones,
- Wear your seatbelt at all times, even if in a parked vehicle. It is estimated
that 148 people may survive car accidents this weekend because they will
have worn seatbelts.
- Do not drink and drive. If you do drink, make arrangements for a designated
driver ahead of time or call a taxi.
