Memorial day weekend is approaching which starts on Friday, May 25, 2012 and ends on Monday, May 28, 2012.
Memorial day is one of the busiest travel weekends and many people will be traveling by car. You should plan your trip carefully and follow some of these tips during your weekend.
Prepare your car for travel
Check all lights, tire pressure, jumper cables, glass cleaner and paper towels are recommended since the bugs are going to make your windshield very dirty.
Maps, GPS and Roadside Assistance Cards
Have your maps planned out by using Google Maps or Mapquest, have your GPS charged and enter the destination address before leaving and have your Roadside cards in the event you need help or have car trouble.
Drive Safety, Follow Speed limits and be ready for traffic congestion
Drive very carefully this weekend. You will encounter 3 times the amount of drivers on the road this weekend and you must plan for extra travel time. Follow the speed limits and do not speed or break the speed limits. Traffic tickets are issued during holiday weekends and speeding leads to higher rates of accidents. Be prepared to stop for traffic or possible accidents. Be patient and enjoy your 2012 Memorial day weekend.
