MEMORIAL DAY TRAVEL SAFETY

 MemorialDay.png

MANY AMERICANS ARE PLANNING TO TRAVEL DURING THE UPCOMING HOLIDAY WEEKEND. TRAVELOCITY STATED THAT NEARLY 80% OF ADULTS WHO SAID THEY PLAN TO TRAVEL ON MEMORIAL DAY, PLANS TO TRAVEL BY CAR.  AAA STATES THAT DUE TO LOW GAS PRICES WE HAVE SEEN THIS YEAR, MORE THAN A THIRD OF AMERICANS PLANS TO TAKE A FAMILY VACATION OF 50 MILES OR MORE FROM HOME THIS YEAR.

THE FOLLOWING ARE GOOD REMINDERS AS YOU PREPARE TO TAKE TO THE ROAD THIS MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND:

-BUCKLE YOUR SAFETY BELT-IT IS THE BEST WAY TO STAY SAFE IN A VEHICLE AND REMEMBER, THE NATIONAL CLICK IT OR TICKET PROGRAM IS IN FULL SWING OVER THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND.

-PUT DOWN THE CELL PHONE-NEARLY 10 PEOPLE ARE KILLED AND OVER 1.000 INJURED EVERY DAY IN CRASHES INVOLVING DISTRACTED DRIVERS-DON'T TEXT AND DRIVE.

 -DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE-EVEN ONE ALCOHOLIC DRINK CAN REDUCE YOUR ABILITIES AND IMPAIR YOUR JUDGEMENT.

-BE PREPARED-TAKE A MAP,ATLAS OR GPS DEVICE; MAKE SURE YOUR SPARE TIRE IS INFLATED AND YOU KNOW HOW TO CHANGE IT; HAVE YOUR CAR SERVICED BEFORE HEADING OUT ; INCLUDE AN EMERGENCY KIT WITH WATER AND SNACKS IN CASE YOU'RE STRANDED FOR MORE THAN A FEW HOURS; REFUEL BEFORE YOUR GAS WARNING INDICATOR DISPLAYS.

-TURN DOWN THE MUSIC-HEARING SIRENS AND EMERGENCY VEHICLES IS AN IMPORTANT WARNING TO SLOW DOWN AND DRIVE CAUTIOUSLY- YOU MAY BE APPROACHING AN ACCIDENT SCENE.

- KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE ROAD AND HANDS ON THE WHEEL-EATING, LOOKING FOR CD'S AND DIGGING FOR THINGS IN THE FLOORBOARD OR BACK SEAT CAN LEAD TO TROUBLE.

-GET PLENTY OF REST-MAKE SURE YOU ARE WELL RESTED BEFORE GETTING BEHIND THE WHEEL, ROTATE DRIVING DUTIES WITH OTHERS IN THE CAR TO AVOID BECOMING TOO SLEEPY OR DISTRACTED.

-TAKE FREQUENT BREAKS-STOP, GET OUT OF THE VEHICLE, AND STRETCH YOUR LEGS OFTEN.

-BE COURTEOUS-BECAUSE OF THE VOLUME OF VEHICLES ON THE ROAD, YOU ARE BOUND TO RUN INTO A FEW TRAFFIC JAMS, BE CUT OFF, OR BE FORCED TO STOP SHORT-REMAIN CALM AND COOURTEOUS-DON'T LET OTHER DRIVERS RUIN YOUR HOLIDAY.

TRAVEL SAFELY AND ENJOY YOUR MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND!

SHERIFF, MICHAEL NEAL
