The Memorial Day weekend is almost here, the first unofficial holiday of summer, so where are you going this weekend? According to reports from AAA 39.3 million Americans are expected to be traveling this weekend. About 35 million travelers are planning to drive. So if you are planning that trip to the state park for a picnic, to the Jersey shore or just over to Aunt Kay’s for a cookout, you are not going to be alone on the roads, the roads are going to be congested as millions of people head out to travel for the Memorial Day weekend. The Memorial Day holiday travel period is defined as between Thursday, May 25 and Monday, May 29. While making your travel plans for the weekend take a few minutes to make sure that your vehicle is ready for that first road trip of the season. Now is the time to check your tires, belts, brakes, battery, wipers, fluids and don’t forget to check the air conditioning. Make sure that your tires are in good condition, come into any Jack Williams Tire & Auto Service Center and we will check your tires for you, we will check the tire pressure and advise you of the condition of your tires. If you happen to need new tires we can guarantee that you will get the best deal in town. Jack Williams Tire & Auto Service Centers can also check your belts, brakes and battery. We have a full stock of windshield wipers so if you happen to get caught in the rain, not a problem. We can check your fluids and give you that last minute oil change if you need it before you hit the road and we can also make sure that you and your passengers are cool as can be if your air conditioning needs a recharge. Also remember that as you hit the road to “Click It or Ticket”. The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is going to partner with the Pennsylvania State Policy and local police departments statewide during the national “Click It or Ticket” traffic enforcement program which started Monday May 22nd and runs through June 4th. If you are stopped for a traffic violation and you are not wearing a seat belt, the driver of the vehicle will receive two citations – one for the traffic violation and the other for the seat belt violation. So remember to buckle up when you and your passengers hit the road for the upcoming holiday weekend. We wish you all a Happy and Safe Memorial Day weekend, take a moment and remember that you are enjoying the freedoms that you have today because of the sacrifices of those who have died in service for our country.
