The chances for an accident increase when more cars are on the road, but the chances increase exponentially during the summer months. Labor Day weekend is just around the corner, and everyone is headed out of town to enjoy the nice weather and the three-day weekend.

Memorial Day, the Fourth of July and Labor Day are summer holidays with some of the highest crash fatality rates. Findings show that this upcoming holiday weekend is one of the most deadly.

What makes this weekend so dangerous?

  • Drunk driving: The NHTSA as well as other safety organizations are campaigning heavily in the hopes of reducing the number of individuals who drive under the influence over the holidays. Summer + celebrating with family + a day off work = more time to imbibe. Driving home after a day of drinking can have deadly consequences.
  • Heavy traffic: Since everyone is heading out of town, the roads and highways will likely be more congested than usual, creating traffic jams and the possibility of more crashes.
  • Distracted driving: When faced with a traffic jam, many individuals scroll through their phones to pass the time. This is a dangerous habit, however, and can lead to major crashes that end in fatality.
  • Road rage: You may be used to sitting in traffic on your way to and from work, but it can be frustrating to have to sit in traffic on your way to a barbeque. Road rage can come on fast and have dangerous consequences. Statistics show that road rage causes 66 percent of traffic deaths.

As you prepare for Labor Day, remember to be cautious while on the road. It is crucial to stay safe and remember that this holiday has proven deadly.
