Memorial Day commemorates U.S. men and women who died while in the military service. It is a holiday many of us spend doing family gatherings, backyard BBQs or enjoying a nice evening out with friends and family. However we choose to celebrate Memorial Day in Lexington, Kentucky, we do so by honoring those who have lost their lives for our great freedoms.
Keep in mind however, that according to a study by the National Coalition for Safer Roads, Memorial Day Weekend is the most dangerous holiday for road and highway accidents.
Here are some tips on how to stay safe on this holiday weekend:
To ensure everyone arrives safely at their destinations, motorist should:
1. Obey all speed limits and signs, especially through work zones.
2. Always wear a seatbelt.
3. Never get behind the wheel under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
4. Use your cell phone for emergency situations only.
We hope everyone has a great holiday weekend!
