With anticipated heavy vehicle traffic on area highways this holiday weekend, law enforcement is cautioning drivers to wear their seat belts and allow extra time to get to where you need to go. Door County Sheriff Steve Delarwelle says inattentive driving is the reason behind the majority of accidents. He warns visitors and locals alike to keep their eyes on the road.
Sheriff Delarwelle also advises travelers to plan ahead and not tailgate vehicles in front of you. According to Waze, a community-based traffic and navigation app, traffic peaks for the weekend between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. on Saturday with Sunday traffic peaking between noon and 4 p.m. Labor Day on Monday sees an increase from noon until 3 p.m.
