This weekend, heavy traffic is expected throughout the state of Wisconsin. Memorial Day weekend draws large crowds in the state, both residents and out-of-state visitors.
Traffic accidents over this holiday weekend can be caused by distracted driving, drunk driving, and congestion on the roadways. The Wisconsin Department of Transportation stated that, on average, nine people die each year in Memorial Day weekend traffic accidents.
Last year, seven people lost their lives over the holiday weekend. This year, peak travel hours are considered to be between noon and 8 p.m. on Friday and on Memorial Day. Drivers are advised to avoid the roadways during these hours in order to stay out of heavy traffic.
