Can you believe it, next Monday is Memorial Day, the unofficial start of summer. The weather is projected to be great, so that means lots of people will be out and about visiting family and friends, or going to the beach to enjoy the holiday. This is our annual plea to do so carefully and not have your holiday end in a tragedy.
You know the drill – watch your speed, don’t drink and drive, don’t text and drive, wear your seat belt, watch out for motorcycles and people on bikes. There will be lots of cops out this weekend to motivate you to follow the law. They are there for your protection and the protection of others on the road.
So this weekend and throughout the summer months, please be extra careful when you are out on the road. There are so many good reasons to obey the traffic laws, but if you need an extra one – consider this. Law enforcement will be out and tickets will be distributed and it will cost you dollars that you could otherwise spend having a good time. Not an elevating reason, but maybe the one that works. The Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning has produced a video on what you can expect. Please watch it by clicking on the link below and be safe!
