Memorial Day 2021 occurs on Monday, May 31st. Memorial Day is an American holiday, observed on the last Monday of May, honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Many people observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, others hold family gatherings. Some towns have parades and other celebrations. It also unofficially marks the beginning of the summer season.
Memorial Day is consistently one of the deadliest holidays for drivers and passengers on U.S. roadways. As of 2020 results, it holds the #2 spot, but in 2019 it was the deadliest holiday for drivers and passengers on America’s roadways.
Memorial Day 2021 may look different than past years, but as more businesses and cities open back up after pandemic restrictions it's likely that we'll see heavy traffic and an increasing number of events serving alcohol.
Memorial Day is known for many things, and unfortunately being deadly due to drunk driving is one of them. When you celebrate Memorial Day, make sure to do so safely. One way to avoid drunk driving is to have a plan BEFORE you start drinking. Your safe driving plan may include a designated driver, public transportation, or a ridesharing service.
Another way to avoid drunk driving is to avoid drinking alcohol completely. You can drink a soft drink instead of a beer and still enjoy the fun. Or if you're attending a family gathering and feel comfortable inviting yourself over to spend the night, have a drink at the celebration but don't drive home until the next day once you're sober. Or host the party at your home and offer your guests that same option.
Keeping the roadways safe is a great way to honor the men and women who gave their lives for our country. A DUI arrest can cost thousands of dollars including fines, court costs, attorney fees, and other expenses. If you do drink a small amount of alcohol and plan to drive only after sobering up, make sure you understand the effects of alcohol on your body. Even a small amount of alcohol can still impact your driving.
Enjoy the backyard parties, the BBQ, the pool, and the fireworks shows. But don't ruin the fun of Memorial Day and your future, don't drive drunk. To find out how Smart Start of Louisiana is helping to separate drinking from driving, call us or fill out our contact form.
