3 Safe Driving Tips for BUSY Holiday Weekends at the Lake of the Ozarks
1. ALWAYS designate a sober driver no matter where you are coming back from.
It is never a safe idea to drive while intoxicated or under the influence. During Memorial Day weekend at the Lake of the Ozarks, there may be plenty of events going on where alcohol is readily available, also throughout the entire season at the Lake of the Ozarks, there are plenty of lakefront bars that are typically open serving alcohol. All of the being said is important that you either call a taxi or designate a sober friend or family member to drive you home if you have had too much to drink.
2. Watch your speed.
With this being a holiday weekend, there may be even more law enforcement officers than usual patrolling the roads. If you are speeding you are likely to get pulled over and possibly a ticket. They have to do their jobs to make the Lake area safe and try and prevent accidents from occurring by pulling over speeders.
3. Avoid distractions while driving.
