A record number of travelers are expected on U.S. roadways this weekend. AAA says 37.5 million Americans will drive to their destination. That’s an increase of 2.9 percent over last year. Strong employment, rising incomes, higher consumer confidence and cheaper gas prices are credited with the travel upswing. Door County Sheriff Steve Delarwelle says the best thing you can do is wear your seatbelt. He has a couple of other tips, too.
Delarwelle says it’s also a good idea to drive with your headlights on so that other drivers can see you better. The Independence Day holiday officially begins today through July 4th.
