Recent reports from AAA predict that nearly 2.5 million people in the Mountain West region will hit the road during Labor Day weekend, and that means Arizona auto accidents may be on the rise. Labor Day is now passed, but even during regular weekends or other holiday weekends, here’s a few tips on saving yourself time, money, and trouble along the way:
- Check your tire pressure before you hit the road to increase gas mileage, reduce stopping distance, and make it easier to manage your vehicle in a crisis.
- Don’t just watch the speed limit. Following the speed limit will increase your gas mileage and help you avoid accidents.
- Avoid driving behind large trucks and vans where you can’t see what’s going on ahead, making you more likely to become involved in a crash.
