Five Tips for Keeping Your Memorial Day Travel Fun and Safe

For anyone who will be traveling this busy holiday weekend, safety should be the number one priority. From driving safely to choosing the most effective and safest routes, drivers should plan ahead. Here are a few tips to keep your holiday weekend safe and fun.  

Be Prepared for a Safe Drive

Prevent a breakdown by making sure your car is in top working order. Check your tire pressure and fill your tank before you head out on the highway.

Watch Out for the Other Driver

Defensive driving is all about situational awareness. Pay attention to everything on the road. If you see another driver make a mistake, be ready to get out of the way and prevent an accident.

Choose a Safer Road

Toll Roads are among the safest roads in America. Toll authorities know their customers expect a higher maintenance standard and tolls give them the funds to deliver on that promise. Toll Roads have safety cameras and teams that constantly monitor the roadway to respond quickly to an accident.

Choose the More Direct, Less Congested Route

Today's electronic toll collection systems allow you to pay for your ride without slowing down or waiting in line. With All Electronic Toll collection (AET), stopping at a toll booth is a thing of the past - it's now go, go, go.

Know the Upcoming Weather Forecast

With so much severe weather developing across the country, know the expected weather in the locations you are traveling this holiday weekend so you can be better prepared for the best and safest routes.
