Before you set out on that Memorial Day road trip, have a Marrero auto care technician, like the Marrero auto care specialists at Twin Tire, make sure your car is ready to hit the road.
AAA has put out its annual Memorial Day travel prediction and, not surprisingly, it shows a lot of people will be hitting the road next weekend.
“Nearly 43 million Americans will start their summers on a high note with a Memorial Day weekend getaway,”” AAA says. “This long holiday weekend, marking the unofficial start of summer vacation season, will see the second-highest travel volume on record since AAA began tracking holiday travel volumes dating back to 2000, trailing only the bar set in 2005. “
Not surprisingly, AAA says most of those - “37.6 million – will hit the road, the most on record for the holiday and 3.5 percent more than last year.”
When the number of drivers on the roads increase, so do the calls to AAA for service. AAA says it expects to rescue about “353,000 motorists at the roadside this Memorial Day weekend. Dead batteries, flat tires and lockouts will be the leading reasons AAA members will experience car trouble.”
To help avoid a roadside breakdown, AAA “recommends motorist take their vehicles to a trusted repair facility to perform any needed maintenance before heading out on a road trip. Be prepared for emergencies with a mobile phone and car charger, a flashlight with extra batteries, a first-aid kit, a basic toolkit, and drinking water and snacks for all passengers.”
That’s good advice for drivers whether they’re heading out on a holiday road trip or are sticking around New Orleans for one of the many Memorial Day activities. After all, a breakdown, at best, kills your fun. No one wants to wait for help whether it’s on the side of a strange road or near home.
