Where are the Most Dangerous Intersections in Lufkin?

It’s the beginning of a holiday weekend, YAY! And the beginning of people in your way on the road and aggressive drivers ticking you off. Who will present the biggest problem on the road today? It’s those darn red light runners.

We’ve probably all had the experience of sitting at a red light that turns green, signaling our chance to go, and all of a sudden a car zooms through from the other direction. Near miss! Red light runners cause accidents all the time, and it turns out today is one of their favorite days to do it.

Holiday Weekend Means Texans Hit the Road

Triple A says more than 34 million Americans will drive more than 50 miles from home over the three day Memorial Day weekend. In Texas, that’s 2.8 million people clogging up the roads. And your plans?

My family plans to skip the road trip and do something totally different….backyard camping! Many of my friends have been doing it lately with their kids and posting the pics on Facebook. I’m inspired to try it. Apparently all we have to do to have backyard fun is haul the sleeping bags outside and pitch a tent back there, and save the cost of admission to a park. It is pretty smart. You have your own private space with no wayward frisbees finding their way into your business, and all the conveniences like showers and toilets stay within just a few steps. AND, you don’t have to lug that heavy cooler either, with frosty beverages in the fridge nearby.

If you do hit the road this weekend, know the police will be watching CLOSELY for wrong moves.

So more and more couples are eschewing this tradition and opting for honeymoon registries. According to the website Honeymoonwishes.com, this is how the registry works:
