Heavy Traffic Predicted for Henry County, Georgia Labor Day Weekend

Experts predict people will be heading out of town in record-breaking numbers this Labor Day weekend.  This highly anticipated long weekend is the last summer holiday and traditionally known as the last chance to have outdoor fun before buckling down at work and school.  

 

AAA projects 35.5 million Americans will travel 50 miles or more this Thursday through Monday.  More than 85 percent of travelers will take advantage of low gas prices and travel by car. 

 

Unfortunately, higher traffic volume plus celebrations means a much higher likelihood of car accidents.  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports Labor Day weekend is a dangerous holiday for driving nationwide, and local experts say Henry County residents should use extra caution when driving the highly traveled I-75 corridor.  

 

The Henry County Police Department reminds drivers that the “100 Days of Summer H.E.A.T.” campaign will be in full force over the weekend.  The program designed to make our roads safer during the peak summer travel time will conclude for the year on Monday, September 7th.  According to the 2013 national data, 38 percent of fatalities during the holiday travel period involved drunk drivers. More than 25 percent of those fatalities involved a driver with a blood alcohol at least twice the legal limit.
