Meanwhile, for those of you who are planning to head out on the road this weekend, here’s some additional travel tips courtesy of WikiTraver for the Labor Day long weekend.
- -Go early or stay late.
- There’s less traffic early in the morning or late at night, particularly on the Fridays and Monday’s of holiday weekends. Just be sure you are well rested before driving late at night.
- -Travel on the off days.
The worst holiday traffic is on the Friday and Monday evenings. If possible, take a day off and shift your weekend up, or back, a day
- -Think safety before speed.
The most certain way to slow down your Labor Day trip is to get in an accident. Don’t try to make up for lost time by driving recklessly, and don’t drive after drinking. Last year, quite disturbingly, 40% of all Labor Day weekend accidents were caused by drunk drivers.
So we hope you enjoy the Holiday weekend – we wish you happy and safe travels wherever you are headed!
