Driving Tips for Labor Day Weekend

The Labor Day holiday marks the final days of Summer. For many families, it’s that last chance to go on a road trip before school kicks into high gear. Many people will be hitting the road over the Labor Day weekend, so here are a few safe driving tips to keep in mind.

  • Make sure you have a first aid kit stashed somewhere in your vehicle, just in case someone needs to mend a “boo-boo”.
  • Traffic is going to be heavy, so try to hit the road earlier or later than everyone else.
  • Make sure your tires have plenty of tread, are properly inflated, and that your spare tire is ready to be used at a moment’s notice.
  • To get more fuel into your gas tank, try to fill up with gas in the early morning before the day gets hot.
  • Be sure to pack lots of drinking water in the car so you and your passengers stay hydrated. Pack a few healthy snacks, too.
  • For antsy children, bring some games or toys along to keep them occupied.
  • Carry traveling pillows so your passengers can sleep more comfortably during their time in the car.
  • Remember, “slow and steady” is a safer way to “arrive alive” than “fast and hurried”. Be careful while driving!
  • Lastly, do not text and drive. It’s illegal and dangerous. Use your vehicle’s Bluetooth setup to have a hands-free phone conversation while driving.
