Avoid Driving Injuries and Fatalities Over the Holiday Weekend

Motorists are expected to hit Arizona roadways in record numbers over the holiday weekend. Due to hot temperatures in the Phoenix area and low gas prices, the long Fourth of July weekend is going to mean a lot of people on the roadways.

Gas prices haven’t been this low since 2005, which has many Americans looking to drive 50 miles or more to their Independence Day celebrations. According to AAA, more than 43 million Americans are expected to take to the road. Unfortunately, an increase of travelers also typically leads to higher instances of traffic injuries and fatalities.

Experts suggest hitting the road early to avoid the heaviest traffic. The AAA recommends traveling off peak hours and allotting more time to get to a destination.

Law enforcement agencies throughout the state are increasing patrols in an effort to keep roadways safer over the holiday weekend. That means keeping an eye out for speeders and impaired drivers. Keeping drunk drivers off the streets is always a priority.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, drivers between the ages of 18 and 34 are most likely to drive drunk over holiday weekends.

Personal injury attorneys across the state will likely get a lot of calls after the holiday weekend, due to the higher volume of traffic on roadways.

Lawyers with the Phoenix personal injury law firm Alex and Associates say it’s important for anyone who plans to get behind the wheel to practice safe driving techniques and stay sober. There’s always an increased risk of injury or death with so many drivers on the road.

Experts recommend choosing a designated driver before any festivities begin. Anyone who sees someone attempting to drive drunk should take the drivers keys and call a cab or hail a rideshare service. Planning ahead will help make Independence Day an enjoyable holiday for everyone.
