Traffic Expected to Be Lighter than Usual Over 4th of July


July 02, 2020

MONTGOMERY, AL- The montgomeryadvertiser.com writes that the authorities anticipate fewer people on the road this year for the 4th of July than usual. Despite the lighter than normal traffic, officials are urging motorists to use caution when traveling over the holiday weekend.* 

Most years, AAA releases forecasts for holiday travel. However, this year the AAA is not releasing such information. Because of the pandemic, AAA expects that roads will not be as busy. 

Work zones on in the state will not be active over the holiday. However, the work equipment will remain in place, and speed limit reductions are still applicable. Motorists should account for slowed work zone traffic and leave themselves plenty of time to get to their holiday destinations. 

Other safety tips for drivers include a reminder to always buckle up. Recent statistics indicate that 60 percent of the victims in deadly crashes in Alabama were not using their seatbelts. The chances of surviving a collision increase when drivers use their restraints. Officials also remind drivers to slow down. Speeding is the number one contributing factor in deadly crashes in the state. 

Distracted driving is yet another common factor in deadly accidents. Drivers who are using their phones to text are 23 times more at risk of being in a crash than drivers not texting.
