Memorial Day Weekend marks the unofficial start of summer. No matter how you choose to spend your holiday weekend, whether it’s traveling to a beach or lake, spending time with friends and family at a BBQ or relaxing at home, the attorneys and staff at Floyd Hunter want to wish you and your family a safe and happy Memorial Day Weekend!

This weekend is one of the busiest travel holidays of the year, as an estimated 36 million Americans will be traveling on the roads to get to their holiday destinations. The increase in drivers on the road creates a higher risk for accidents.

If you or your loved ones are traveling, please be safe on the roads and follow these helpful tips.

Plan Your Trip Ahead of Time – Leave early in order to get a head start on your drive and try to avoid traveling at peak hours

Stay Alert – Make sure you’re aware of your surroundings at all times, be patient and obey the speed limit

Stay Informed – Know where there are road closures and heavy or delayed traffic

Avoid Distracted Driving – Never use your phone while driving, and keep looking ahead when speaking to passengers

Don’t Drink and Drive – Never drink and drive – use a car service or stay over at a family or friend’s house instead

We hope by following these tips, you will enjoy celebrating the holiday weekend and kicking off the start of the summer season safely. Enjoy your Memorial Day Weekend!
