As the majority of companies have Labor Day off, thousands of families around the country are planning to celebrate with their additional non-work hours. Some travel to a relative’s house in a different state while others are fine having a backyard grill out with a couple of beers at their sides. The personal finance site WalletHub found that over 40 percent of Americans have a barbecue over the weekend while nearly a quarter of the population plans to travel elsewhere, with over 85 percent of them traveling by car.
Many Labor Day traditions are eerily similar to the Fourth of July, and unfortunately that means there is a higher chance for personal injuries to occur in Texas this weekend. Before you celebrate your well-earned time off, you should be aware of the potential hazards that lie on the Lone Star State’s roads and your grill.
