Electricity, vehicle crashes
For many, Labor Day weekend will include an extra day off work and meeting up with friends and family. It is also means more travel time on America’s roads. Safe Electricity encourages those taking to the road this weekend to take extra care and make sure they know what to do if they should find themselves in an auto accident with power lines.
According to the National Safety Council, on average the number of traffic deaths during Labor Day weekend is 14.6 percent higher than during the weekends before and after the holiday. In 2013, they are estimating that there will be 400 traffic fatalities.
“Car accidents are scary experiences,” said John Lowrey, advisory board member of the Safe Electricity program. “After the trauma of a car accident, your first instinct may be to leave the car. Safe Electricity wants to remind people that if you are involved in an accident with power poles or power lines, the safest place after an accident is actually inside the car.”
