Fourth of July Weekend Expected to Bring More Traffic and Troopers

Officials warn residents of the Carolinas to prepare themselves for a weekend filled with heavy traffic and increased state trooper presence. The Charlotte Observer reports that “AAA Carolinas estimates there will be a 12 percent increase in the number of holiday travelers in North and South Carolina.”

In an effort to ease traffic, officials will halt all construction on the major roadways. This begins at 4 p.m. today and ends at 9 a.m. Tuesday.

The Charlotte Observer says the the Fourth of July weekend brings danger with it. It even goes so far as to report that, “is historically one of the most dangerous times for drivers.” AAA Carolinas says that, last year alone, there were 20 road deaths in North Carolina and 16 in South Carolina.

The Charleston car accident lawyers at The Steinberg Law Firm hope that you have a safe and fun Fourth of July weekend.
