With Memorial Day weekend only a couple of weeks away, you are likely preparing for exciting parties, barbeques, and other gatherings with friends and family. However, it is one of the most dangerous weekends of the year. Countless individuals find themselves seeking medical attention and legal representation after being injured due to no fault of their own. Though this is an inescapable reality for many, it doesn’t have to be.
Your weekend should not include a trip to the emergency room. Avoid any disasters by considering the following safety tips:
- Holiday weekends guarantee an increase in drunk or buzzed drivers. Though law enforcement attempts to hold people accountable with checkpoints, not every irresponsible driver can be caught before he or she makes a grave mistake. Make sure you never get into a vehicle with someone who has been drinking. There is no excuse for drunk driving in 2019 with the advent and ease of access to ridesharing apps such as Uber and Lyft.
- Drowsy driving, though not as prevalent as driving under the influence, is a significant concern for both nearby getaways as well as long-distance road trips.
- Food and grill safety often go overlooked but are very real concerns for anyone attending a barbeque or luncheon. Grease fires are extremely dangerous and though food poisoning seems mild, it can quickly become life-threatening.
