39.3 million people are expected to travel in the U.S. this Memorial Day weekend. These travelers will travel by car, plane, boat, and train. The vast majority of travelers are going to hit the road and drive to their destination. This increased traffic is likely to increase the risk of people being injured and killed on Oregon's roads. However, the roads are not the only dangers people should be aware of. Every year people (usually children) get seriously injured in incidents involving barbecues and fire-pits. Many people will also put their boats in the water for the first time this year. Boat crashes are not uncommon. It also seems like almost every year people drown in Oregon's beautiful rivers and lakes. Most of these incidents are avoidable if people exercise common sense, and don't drink too much alcohol. Please exercise common sense and be aware of the dangers that are out there this weekend as you are celebrating Memorial Day.
