Labor Day, be safe!

AAA has projected that the number of Americans traveling on vacation this Labor Day weekend will be heavily impacted by when the holiday falls on the calendar. Approximately 39.1 million travelers are expected to take a trip of 50 miles or more away from home, a decrease of 13.3 percent from 2008. Labor Day fell on Sept. 1 last year allowing for a long weekend trip before a new school year started in many regions of the country; this year it's later, Sept. 8.

Stay safe this weekend!

  • Allow extra driving time.
  • Take lots of breaks.
  • Bring interesting things for your kids to keep them occupied during a long drive.
  • Play geography and road games with your kids, make them look out the window at the world and not just at their portable game systems and videos.
  • Bring water and snacks.
  • Keep your gas tank filled.
  • Don't drive while you are sleepy!
