Memorial Day Weekend Celebration
Memorial Day weekend is the beginning of summer when there is typically a rise in all traffic deaths including drunk driving crashes. In 2016, drunk driving claimed 160 people during the Memorial Day holiday weekend (6pm 05/27/2016 – 5:59am 05/31/2016). MADD wants everyone to have a safe and happy Memorial Day Weekend, and stay safe on the roads. If your celebrations include alcohol, plan ahead and make sure to designate a non-drinking driver. Memorial Day is also the start of Click it or Ticket. Law enforcement will be checking to make sure motorists are buckled. MADD reminds everyone to wear their seatbelt as this remains a great defense against drunk drivers.
