Happy 4th Of July

The summer travel season is in full swing with plenty of cars on the road. For a recent trip our family rented an SUV, as our own minivan now has 133,000 miles on it and has seen better days in its 12 yr lifespan. What fun to have a 'new' car to drive! There will be many families heading to the shore or the mountains this weekend to celebrate the 4th of July. I just wanted to say, be safe! Here are several simple safety tips to make your holiday better.
  • Watch your speed - just a little extra caution can save lives. When I was in Yosemite recently, the park had placed little caution signs with a picture of a bear on them and the caption "Speed Kills Bears", a reminder to slow down.

  • Be courteous - let the other driver merge in when he needs to. Getting to your vacation spot 5 minutes sooner isn't really that important, is it?

  • Lock your car if you leave it, even for a short time - unfortunately it only takes a second for a thief to slip into your car and steal a purse, a Garmin or an ipod left on a seat unattended.

  • So have a safe and wonderful Fourth and enjoy your BBQ, picnic, camping trip or beach vacation. Happy traveling!
