Have Fun but Be Safe This Labor Day!

Today is Labor Day which means a lot of people will be enjoying the great weather and having fun with their families. This also means that traffic will be a lot more congested than usual. Make sure to drive safely out there today and give yourself extra time to get where you need to be. Also keep in mind that police have already increased enforcement over the holiday weekend due to the Drive Sober or Get Pulled over campaign. In 2013 police in Indiana responded to 4,757 alcohol related crashes 124 of which resulted in fatalities, 237 incapacitating injuries and 1,807 in other injuries. To stay safe on labor day remember to plan a safe way home, before drinking designate a sober driver, if you are drunk call a friend or taxi, if you see a drunk driver contact your local law enforcement and if you know someone who is about to drive drunk take their keys and help make other arrangements. Following these safety tips should help you have a fun and safe Labor Day.
