We’ve had a beautiful May in the Pacific Northwest this year and that tends to get people out and planning to get together with friends and family. On holiday weekends like Memorial Day, thousands of barbeques and parties get planned all over the country and that means more cars on the roads as people travel to and from their destinations. Sadly, whenever there are more cars on the road combined with holiday drinking car accidents and traffic fatalities increase. This Memorial Day period*, the National Safety Council (NSC) estimates that 469 people may die on U.S. roads. In addition, they estimate that 53,400 people will seek medical care for injuries they sustain in crashes over the holiday weekend.
