This weekend, thousands of people will descend upon downtown Nashville to participate in the 2015 Country Music Marathon. The event is a wonderful time for both participants and spectators, but it can also require some careful planning when trying to navigate through the city. That’s why the Nashville car accident lawyers at Ponce Law would like to offer a few tips to make your commute as easy as possible:
- Know The Route– Races will begin on Saturday, April 25, at 6:45 a.m. along Lower Broadway downtown. Participants will then travel a loop around the west and north ends of town before working their way to the east side of town. A route map gives a more detailed view of areas where you can expect traffic delays.
- Expect Delays– The race route covers many of the main routes around town and racers will be spread over the course for hours, so there is a high probability you will run into traffic tomorrow. Allow yourself extra time to get to your destination. You can also attempt to map a route before leaving to get around heavy traffic.
- Drive Defensively– There will be many people on the road this weekend—including fatigued runners. These individuals may be unaware of traffic patterns and laws, so allow other vehicles extra space and always yield the right of way to pedestrians.
- Consider Alternate Forms of Transportation– It may simply be easier to get where you’re going by walking, riding a bike, or using another form of transportation.
The Nashville personal injury lawyers at Ponce Law hope these tips help you get around town safely this weekend.
