Many accidents were expected over Memorial Day weekend

With the long weekend that comes with Memorial Day, many drivers may have found themselves on the road, looking forward to either going away for the weekend or enjoying the extra weekend night. Drivers may have press a little harder on the accelerator to get to their destination faster or gotten behind the wheel after having a little too much alcohol and think they may get away with it. But unfortunately, the National Safety Council estimated that more than 300 drivers would not get away with it, as total traffic fatalities for this month alone are expected to be 3,073 with more than 300 coming from the Memorial Day weekend. Another 46,300 were expected to suffer injuries in an accident during the weekend, traditionally considered the start of the summer.
