NY Vehicle Safety Week Kicks Off Safe Travel Practices by John Bair


Memorial Day Weekend is almost here, and with it comes the official start to the summer season. During this weekend and other big travel holidays, motorists must be extra diligent in keeping themselves and others safe on the roadways. To emphasize the importance of proper vehicle maintenance as a primary safety factor, the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has designated May 22 to 29 as the first-ever Vehicle Safety Week in the state.

Memorial Day travel safety

This announcement aims to motivate vehicle owners to check fluids, tire pressure, battery life, windshield wipers and other safety measures to get their vehicles ready for summer travel.

“Just as a family checks to make sure all the suitcases are properly packed and that there is sufficient bug spray and sunscreen, it is even more important to take the time to make sure your vehicle is working properly,” DMV Executive Deputy Commissioner Terri Egan said in a press release. “Nothing ruins a vacation like being stranded at the side of the road or, worse, being in a preventable crash.”

The New York DMV urges all vehicle owners to check safercar.gov for information on recalls that could affect their vehicles, so they can ensure they have made all necessary fixes before traveling.

Don’t Forget About Distracted Driving Dangers

During Memorial Day Weekend (and throughout the fun-filled summer), your car will likely be packed with people and home-cooked side dishes. You might be getting calls in the car from friends and family members who have questions or need directions to the barbecue. These added disruptions are even more of a reason to make safety a top priority in your vehicle, which means avoiding all manual, cognitive and visual distractions until you’ve arrived at your destination. And remember, other motorists may not be as diligent behind the wheel.

Commissioner Egan puts it perfectly: “We want all New Yorkers’ vacations to be memorable for the right reasons, not the wrong ones.”

Have a happy and safe Memorial Day Weekend!
