4th of July - Most dangerous summer holiday

According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the 4th of July ranks as the deadliest day for drivers for the past decade.

Here are a few travel safety tips provided by Travelers Insurance:

Make sure your car is serviced before embarking on your trip.  Be sure to inspect your spare time to insure it is in good shape.

Bring an emergency roadside kit - stock your car with water and non-perishable food, a flashlight, a first-aid kit, jumper cables, reflective triangles, sunscreen, blankets, towels, and road flares.

Familiarize yourself with your route.  Don't rely solely on your GPS.

Avoid distractions - Concentrate on the road and avoid distractions such as eating, reading maps, operating a GPS or using a cellphone.

Take breaks - When traveling long distances, it’s important to rest to help maintain focus and avoid fatigue.

Never drink and drive - if you plan on drinking, make sure you have a designated driver.

The attached infographic from Travelers provides you with some additional information.

Enjoy your 4th of July Weekend and stay safe.
