Headed out of town for the holiday weekend? Before you pack the cooler and gas up your car, check out these five tips to maximize fun and minimize headaches on the road:
- Use a navigation app with traffic reports
Many smartphones come with a navigation app, but make sure yours has traffic reports available. Waze, a popular community-based navigation app, crowd sources the information from drivers on the road. The app can be used to easily report everything from traffic jams to car accidents and alerts users ahead of time so they can avoid the backup. Just be sure to stay off your phone while driving and have a passenger navigate the roads.
- Stay safe on the roads
With traffic at its peak, law enforcement will be out in full force patrolling to keep roads safe. We’re all in a hurry to get the weekend started, but avoid speeding and make sure to obey all traffic laws. Be extra cautious when driving in unfamiliar areas and construction zones. In the event that you do receive a ticket, more than a dozen courts across Michigan allow you to have your ticket reviewed for a lesser charge completely online. You can submit your statement just as if you were appearing in court. This is ideal if you’re an out-of-town driver who wants to avoid returning for a court date.
