Car accidents: Record numbers expected over the holiday

Summer is a time for outdoor activities, backyard barbecues and spending quality time with family. Summer is also a time for traveling to fun vacation destinations. For many, the July 4th weekend is the perfect time to take a vacation. This year, a record numbers of motorists are expected to be traveling. In an effort to reduce car accidents, the AAA is warning Delaware travelers to prepare for increased traffic on roadways over the holiday.

According to AAA Mid-Atlantic, close to 50 million Americans will be traveling over the July 4th weekend. Reportedly, this unprecedented number is the most travellers ever recorded for the Independence Day holiday. In Delaware, over 133,000 residents will be taking to the roads, which is nearly a 4% increase from a year ago, reports said.

So, what is the cause of this increase? It could be contributed to low gas prices, low unemployment and a strong economy. AAA says July 3rd will probably be the most busy travel day, so they are advising motorists to avoid traveling during peak times on that day if possible. To avoid congestion, travelers are advised to check the Department of Transportation websites for construction zones as well as online traffic cameras.

During peak travel times, it is important for drivers to stay focused behind the wheel and avoid distractions. Car accidents will be more likely to happen on crowded roads. In Delaware, when negligence in a crash results in injuries or death, victims and/or families can take action and file a claim. A lawsuit, if successful, could provide much-needed compensation to help families with recovery of monetary losses.
