Planning to hit the road this Memorial Day weekend? If so, know that you’ll be heading out on one of the most dangerous weekends of the year. Memorial Day weekend is particularly fraught with peril because of increased traffic volumes and the potential for more drivers to be intoxicated than usual.

To reduce your risk of a crash, be sure to follow these tips:

  1. Leave early—Giving yourself plenty of time to reach your destination improves your chances of a crash-free trip in many ways. First, it makes you less likely to speed, as you’ll have plenty of time to arrive on time. Second, it makes it easier to keep a cool head in heavy traffic, as you won’t be feeling the pressure of arriving late.
  2. Plan your route—You may have multiple routes that you can take to reach your destination. Some routes may be interstate-only, while others may involve highways. Some may be back roads-only. Choose the route that you’re most comfortable with and that will involve the least amount of traffic.
  3. Don’t drink and drive—Even if you abstain from alcohol before driving to and from your destination, it’s still important to avoid alcohol before driving after you arrive. That means watching your intake at dinner and while spending time with family and friends if you plan on driving soon after—and that includes boats!

Unfortunately, not all drivers will be safety-conscious over the upcoming holiday weekend. And when negligent drivers cause crashes, it’s our goal to help victims get compensation. If you or someone you love is injured this Memorial Day, contact the Nashville auto accident lawyers at Ponce Law today for a free consultation.

    My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!

    The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
