Travel Tips for the Memorial Day Weekend

Travel Tips - Lewis NissanMemorial Day weekend is the unofficial kickoff to summer which means plenty of people are hitting the roads to welcome summer. This Memorial Day Weekend before you take off for your long weekend, make sure you read these tips on holiday travel.

Allow Extra Travel Time – Make sure you allot yourself plenty of time to reach your destination. Account for heavier traffic than normal since it is a holiday weekend and lots of people are traveling. Don’t push traffic lights or your speed to reach your destination early.

Stretch Your Legs – Make sure you get out of your car and stretch your legs. Walking every couple of hours will help you stay alert while you’re driving. An easy way to do this is when you stop, park a little further away than you normally would so you can take a longer break walking in.

Know When the Highest Times of Risk Are – The greatest risk for traveling on a holiday weekend is Friday afternoon as people are getting off of work and are ready to enjoy their long weekend. The sun will be setting and travelers will be tired from work that day so make sure you stay alert!

These are just some tips before you head out to enjoy your Memorial Day weekend. If you need to get your car serviced, bring it to Lewis Nissan today!
