Busy Roadways: Memorial Day Weekend 2013

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Memorial Day Wekend is one of the most high-traffic weekends in the course of the year. They are anticipating this travel weekend to mean increased traffic, with Missouri and Iowa roadways being monitored by highway patrol in full force. Last Memorial Day Weekend nine people were killed on Missouri roadways, and the goal of law enforcement this year is simply to make sure everyone gets to their destination safe. The Missouri State Highway Patrol will be busy with enforcement-based activities over the long Memorial Day weekend. They will be participating in Operation Care, which is a combined accident reduction effort, wherein all troopers and law enforcement officiers will be working at some point over the extended weekend. While they will be busy enforcing Missouri traffic laws with increased patrol numbers, they will also be avaliable for roadside assistance and other emergencies. Friday and Monday are both peak driving days, so large roadways and major traffic corridors will have patrol officiers in 20 mile increments up and down the road. If you plan to travel this Memorial Day weekend, please stay safe. Remember the importance of buckling up, slowing down, avoiding distractions, and focusing on obeying Missouri traffic laws. Remember, if you or a loved one sustains injuries from an a car crash with an aggressive, negligent driver, you should contact a Missouri injury lawyer.
