Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 08, 2013
Independence Day falls on a Thursday this year, which means celebrations will last nearly all week. If you're planning to travel during this holiday season, be very careful on the highways. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has named July Fourth as the deadliest day on the roads over the past decade.
"The roads will be packed with families traveling for the holiday. Alcohol plays a factor in the celebrations throughout the holiday season, as well. When you put the two together, drivers need to stay alert and use caution," said Greg Stokes, a personal injury lawyer in Atlanta.
"With travelers covering a longer distance and more alcohol related accidents happening on the Fourth of July than any other time throughout the summer, it's more important than ever to drive with care," added Stokes.
Greg Stokes has tips for safe driving around the holidays for families and anybody else on the roads:
"A study on cognitive distractions completed by the AAA proved distractions play a major role in car accidents. Driving requires your full attention, especially during the holidays," said Stokes.
