NSC Urges Memorial Day Driving Caution

The council estimates more than 400 people may be killed in car crashes over the holiday weekend.

The NSC estimates 409 people may be killed on the road during Memorial Day weekend, according to a news release. That is highest estimate from the council by 12% for this period since 2012.

“Memorial Day should mark the start of summer – not the start of another deadly driving season,” said Deborah A.P. Hersman, president and CEO of the National Safety Council. “Paying attention, slowing down and being courteous can ensure you and your fellow travelers make it to picnics, beaches and BBQs rather than emergency rooms.”

The estimate follows the NSC’s upward trend of vehicle deaths.
