Every summer millions of Americans gather at barbeques and beaches to enjoy the summer season. Holidays and long weekends prompt countless family road trips, college parties, and varying festivities across the nation. This surge of celebrations, though exciting, is a breeding ground for dangerous accidents and injuries.
Make sure your summer is memorable for all of the right reasons. Consider the following to protect you and your loved ones’ safety:
- Despite the outpouring of DUI checkpoints and the availability of ridesharing apps like Uber and Lyft, many people choose to get behind the wheel after consuming alcohol. Beware of dangerous drivers to avoid being the collateral damage of someone’s excess partying.
- Use extra caution with fireworks, especially when children are nearby. Always have a fire extinguisher on hand and stay away from flammable areas with grass, bushes, or trees.
- Never swim in areas without a lifeguard present, appointed or otherwise. Whether you are taking a dip in your neighbor’s pool or jumping into a local lake, someone should always observe any swimmers.
- Be cautious and alert on the road. Drinking and driving is not the only danger on the roads. Many travelers are aggressive or impatient when trying to navigate through the inevitable traffic summer holidays bring.
