Consider your travel plans carefully

With the Fourth of July over, many parents are looking towards the end of the summer and having their children back in school. One of the last hurrahs before the school year kicks off is Labor Day. Just like many American families did for the Fourth of July weekend, Labor Day will have them back in the car and on the highways for one last weekend away. And while these last weeks of summer are meant to be enjoyed, increased traffic on highways should have families carefully considering their travel plans to stay safe.

Despite your best efforts to travel safe, it may all be for nothing if your vehicle is not in proper working condition. Staying on top of car maintenance such as tire pressure and oil changes can help your family stay safe while driving. Many car accidents occur when traffic approaches a disabled vehicle and is unable to stop in time. Keeping your car in tiptop shape may help you avoid being a potential danger to other drivers.

Making sure child seats are secured properly, ensuring that all passengers wear seatbelts and limiting distractions can help you reach your destination safe and sound. Likewise, practicing old-school defensive driving techniques can also help ensure your family's safety.

Keep in mind, though, that no matter how much planning goes into your vacation, it is impossible to ensure other drivers have done the same. If you are injured while on the road as the result of a negligent or distracted driver, you may wish to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney. Nothing ruins a summer vacation like an accident, but with the help of an attorney, you may be able to receive the compensation you need to recover and join your family for future vacations.
