Memorial Day weekend has been known as the holiday that rings in the summer and starts vacation season. Unfortunately, many people associate holidays and travel with becoming intoxicated. For this reason, roads are not as safe over Memorial Day weekend, Fourth of July, Labor Day weekend, or other holiday weekends.

Because there is an increase in traffic during holiday weekends, motorists are encouraged only to drive to their specific destinations. Additionally, it is best not to drive late at night if you do not need to.

When driving this upcoming Memorial Day weekend, be sure to pay extra attention on the road and to drivers around you. In order to do this, you should be well rested and not distracted at the wheel with your cell phone, texting, or eating. That will ensure you are in the best position to react to danger.

Drunk driving is not tolerated in the state of Georgia. If you see someone driving drunk on any Georgia road, call local authorities to report that driver. You may be able to save a life by reporting a drunk driver.

If you or someone you love is injured in a crash this upcoming Memorial Day weekend in Georgia, please call a skilled Georgia DUI injury attorney to find out your rights and to learn what compensation to which you may be entitled.
