Drive safe this Labor Day weekend

Labor Day weekend is a deadly time on America's roadways. Remember to buckle up and drive sober. From 6 p.m. Friday, Sept. 3, through Monday, Sept. 6, NSC estimates 368 traffic fatalities and an additional 19,900 nonfatal disabling injuries will occur. Safety belt use is the most effective protection against serious crash injuries. Law enforcement also will be stepped up as part of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Drunk Driving. Over the Limit. Under Arrest. campaign, which aims to remove impaired drivers from the road this holiday weekend.
