As we are nearing the end of summer, many of us are packing our bags for small Labor Day weekend getaways. This year, travel is expected to rise compared to previous years.  Busier roads mean higher risk of traffic accidents, especially those that involve impaired driving. Malman Law is encouraging all travelers to drive sober throughout the weekend. If you or a loved one happen to be involved in a traffic accident, call an Illinois vehicle accident attorney as soon as possible to learn about your legal rights.

This weekend, AAA reported that approximately 34.1 million people are planning to travel throughout the weekend. Out of the 34.1 million, 29.2 million people plan to drive to their destination. This is an overall 4.3 percent rise compared to last year. Reports suspect that the increase is due to lowering gas prices, increased consumer spending, and a rising housing market. AAA stated in an article that “the total number of 2013 Labor Day holiday travelers is expected to reach a new post-recession high.” This good news also comes along with sometimes unsafe driving habits that can turn an enjoyable family weekend into an unfortunate crash, injury, and or death. To prevent such accidents from occurring, the attorneys at Malman Law are encouraging safe driving.

Safety in Mind

While Malman Law encourages all travelers to celebrate Labor Day weekend and the end of summer, Malman Law also wants to encourage drivers to keep safety a top priority.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that impaired driving has certainly improved in the past years. Still, they are advocating that there is room for improvement. In a campaign, it was stated that,

“Forty years ago in a roadside survey of drivers, almost 1 in 12 (8%) were driving drunk. The most recent data (2007) from the same survey shows that rate is down to 1 in 50 (2%), which is good progress. Those impaired drivers still claim the lives of nearly 10,000 people a year – and one-third are their passengers, occupants of other vehicles, pedestrians, or bicyclists.” (NHTSA)

It is unfortunate that many of the lives taken from vehicle crashes involve a person who was sober. It is not just your life that is at risk when you drive impaired, that is why we at Malman Law encourage drivers to be safe this weekend to prevent any wreckages on the roadways. If you or a loved one were victimized in a traffic accident, Malman Law is here to represent your case. We have the knowledge and skills to work with insurance companies, uninsured or underinsured vehicle accidents and other parties involved.

We hope that all persons this weekend take the time to be cautious of their driving habits while still enjoying themselves and their families and friends. 

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration created a safe driving interactive program that allows you to test drive your safety practices on the road. Visit to learn more about safety practices today.
