People will be massing roadways, public land and waterways this Labor Day weekend, bringing the summer boating and park going season to an unofficial end.
Given the typical level of activity, we cannot stress the importance of safety, enough and encourages people to designate a sober driver for the weekend, and be prepared for your adventure. Just because there are more people it does not make it safer. In fact it will make things more unsafe, especially your drive to and from.
Booze and people do not mix on a multitude of levels.
Intoxicated persons cause the danger level to rise. Large public gatherings also encourage criminal activity, everything from theft to armed robbery and worse.
Holiday weekends mean increased use of public lands, roadways and waterways and that means an increased need for safety and awareness. Stay safe by being prepared.
