As Memorial Day weekend approaches, make sure that the vehicle is read for the driving that will be done. No matter if you are only going a few miles or few hours, the vehicle should be in a safe and reliable condition. This will help reduce the chance of unexpected breakdowns while you are on the road traveling over the weekend. If there are any issues or problems you notice, always make sure to contact us. We can give the vehicle a bumper to bumper inspection. If there is an issue, it can be repaired quickly to ensure a safe ride for you and your passengers.
Memorial Day Traffic
With more traffic on the road, make sure to leave in plenty of time. Doing so will reduce any frustration incase you encounter slow or stopped traffic on the roads. Make sure to know what route you are taking, and look up if there are any spots where road construction is going on. During the summer, it will actually be rare to not encounter some sort of road construction as you travel. This will result in reduced lanes for driving, or even a detour. Leaving in plenty of time also reduces the urge you may have to speed, to make it there on time.
Make sure to leave enough space between you and the vehicle in front of you. Following too close can cause an accident incase the car in front slams on the brakes. You will want extra space so that you can react or adjust your driving in some way. Always be aware of the traffic around you so you do not swerve or hit a vehicle in the next lane. Rely on the rearview mirror, side mirrors, as well as looking over your shoulder to any blind spots. Remember to also have the headlights on when it is raining or getting dark so other drivers can see your vehicle.
