For many, Memorial Day weekend is seen as the official start to the summer festivities. While this is a joyous time for families and friends to get together, it can also be a very dangerous one.
Last year, it was estimated by AAA that 38 million Americans would be traveling over the weekend, with more than 50,000 people being injured in car crashes (National Safety Council).
Several of these accidents were from DUIs, as the weekend typically leads to alcohol use without proper consumption or driving precautions. Enjoy your weekend, stay sober and drive safe.
Have a very happy Memorial Day!
