Have fun but stay safe

Labor Day weekend is typically the end of the summer season. This can mean parties and fun with friends and family. Driving locally or away for the weekend can be a dangerous situation. According the the National Safety Council, there are about 400 fatal auto accidents over Labor Day weekend each year. The NSC also estimates that there are an additional 49,000 others who experience non-fatal car accident injuries. Remember that according the the NSC seat belts are 45% effective in preventing fatalities among front seat passengers, this means 157 lives could be saved by seat belts this Labor Day. If you are driving or riding with someone remember your seat belt and remember to avoid drunk driving. Have a safe and fun holiday weekend.
