Happy Memorial Day Weekend!
 
If you are like many Americans, your plans for the three day weekend include driving. Whether you are attending the Rockin Blues, Brews & Barbecue Fest, attending a graduation or picnicking with relatives, you will be one of thousands of cars on Georgia roads. Georgia State Patrol troopers are expecting a busy weekend.
 
During last year's seventy-eight-hour Memorial Day holiday weekend, there were 2,143 traffic accidents in Georgia.  These car crashes resulted in 945 injuries and five fatalities; the lowest number of fatalities ever recorded for Memorial Day weekend.  One death was the result of a Georgia pedestrian accident and another involved a motorcycle crash.
 
The Georgia State Patrol hopes to keep the number of fatalities low this year. They will be patrolling both interstates and secondary roads.

In order to stay safe, Atlanta car crash attorney Shane Smith would like to remind you of these safe driving tips.
  •  
  • Plan your trip in advance and leave plenty of time to reach your destination
  • Take frequent rest stops and rest if you feel drowsy
  • Avoid driver distractions
  • If you plan to drink, don't drive. Appoint a designated driver.
  • Buckle up
 
Have a wonderful weekend.
