safety tips for memorial day weekend in arizona

This Memorial Day weekend, families across the United States will celebrate the unofficial beginning of summer. For those of us living in Arizona, this monumental three-day weekend means embarking on a spontaneous road trip, grilling by the pool, or lounging on the lake. However, fun activities such as these often mean an increase in accidents over the holiday weekend.

Most people don’t feel like an accident would ever happen to them. Unfortunately, accidents are unpredictable and can happen to anyone.

By taking simple safety precautions, you can decrease the chances of an injury to you or a loved one.

Road Safety

Memorial Day is among the worst days of the year to be on the open road. With 44% of all traffic fatalities are alcohol-related, one cannot be too cautious on such a notoriously celebrated holiday.

You can avoid an alcohol-related accident by:

  • Having a designated driver
  • Arranging for a place to stay if you don’t have a designated driver
  • Calling a cab or an Uber/Lyft
  • Make sure your vehicle has been properly maintained

Pool Safety

The most popular way to cool off, especially here in Arizona, is a dip in the swimming pool. Even though an afternoon out by the pool is fun, accidents still happen. Hundreds of children have drowned during the Memorial Day Weekend.

Below are some tips to keep you and your youngsters safe:

  • Do not run near the pool
  • Never leave children unattended
  • Have life jackets available
  • Keep pools maintained properly
