Memorial Day Weekend is one of the busiest weekends of the year for traveling and the increase in travelers can have deadly results.

According to the National Safety Council (NSC), 2019 is the first time in four years that the estimated amount of Memorial Day Weekend deaths comes in below 400.

NSC says that 43,300 people may be seriously injured over the three day weekend.

"Although we are experiencing a plateau in fatality trends, we are still losing an unacceptable number of people on our roadways, and this holiday may be no different," said Ken Kolosh, manager of statistics at the National Safety Council. "If we pay attention, slow down and be courteous, we can increase our chances of making it to picnics, beaches and barbecues rather than emergency rooms."

According to the release, Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day typically claim 110 more lives than the winter holidays of Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day.

NSC says to practice defensive driving, drive sober or have a designated driver, get plenty of sleep and drive attentively.
