AAA believes nearly 43 million Americans will travel this July 4th weekend. 36 million of those are expected to travel to their destinations by car, truck, motorcycle, or SUV. If you plan to be among them, please practice caution to help protect your safety as well as the safety of everyone else on the road.
Keeping Safe July 4th Weekend
You can do your part to keep the roads safe this Fourth of July weekend by:
- Not drinking and driving
- Avoiding all forms of distracted driving
- Maintaining a two to three car gap in between your vehicle and the one in front of you
- Obeying all traffic signs and signals
- Going with the flow of traffic
- Allowing extra time to get to your destination
- Being courteous and patient
These steps can help prevent your causing an auto accident during this busy holiday weekend, but may not be enough to fully protect you against one caused by an irresponsible driver.
