Memorial Day Kicks Off Summer Travel Season

Memorial Day is coming up. The holiday marks the beginning of summer travel season for many people. According to AAA, more than 41.5 million Americans will travel this Memorial Day weekend. With more people on the road, it’s important to be patient and drive smart.

The Mississippi Department of Transportation has these reminders for motorists:

  • Obey all speed limits and signs, especially through work zones.
  • Always wear a seat belt.
  • Never get behind the wheel under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
  • Use your cell phone for emergency situations only.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 94 percent of crashes are caused by human error. One of the most important safety steps drivers can take is simply slowing down and paying attention.
