Practicing Subaru Safety for Memorial Day in Covington LA
Although Memorial Day is a specific holiday for a specific reason, it brings different things to mind for different people. While we honor our fallen service men and women, many families host reunions for that weekend, which draw relatives from far and wide. The holiday is also commonly thought of as the unofficial beginning of summer for lots of us (despite it actually starting with the Summer Solstice in June) which translates into the first vacation in a while for some. And of course, the custom of visiting memorials and cemeteries to clean and decorate the graves of our soldiers is a time honored tradition. Clearly, Memorial Day in Covington LA and elsewhere will involve getting out on the road with the 43 million other Americans who are expected to be traveling on this year's Memorial Day weekend. According to AAA, that's about 1.5 million more people than last year, and the largest number in 16 years! With so many travelers zooming along our nation's highways and byways over the holiday weekend, vehicle safety, driving safety, and passenger safety should be at the forefront of all of everyone's thoughts. Unfortunately, we know that won't be the case, so it's a good thing Subaru has kept safety at the forefront of their engineering and manufacturing thoughts. What you've heard on commercials is true; when you choose a Subaru as your vehicle, you're opting for a company that is and has always been dedicated to protecting you and your loved ones. Subaru is an industry leader in modern safety advances and has been for quite some time.
Memorial Day in Covington LA: Places to go
There are several Memorial Day events happening around Covington and the neighboring areas, which you'll need to drive to in order to participate. A beautiful Memorial Day Garden of Flags and Ceremony will take place on Saturday, May 29 in Baton Rouge at the State Capitol. The public is encouraged to attend and is asked to line the street in front of the Capitol building at 7:30 a.m. If traffic is heavy and parking is difficult, you'll really appreciate EyeSight, Subaru's innovative driver assist technology. EyeSight lends assurance to your trip by monitoring traffic movement, optimizing cruise control, and alerting you when you drift out of your lane. Did you know that EyeSight was found to decrease the rate of rear-end collisions with injuries by up to 85 percent? Another outing for Memorial Day in Covington LA is the always popular trip to the Gulf Coast for the day or maybe the entire weekend. With so many events and activities from Bay St. Louis to Pensacola and beyond, traffic is sure to be congested and many drivers are sure to be distracted. Subaru DriverFocus works in unison with EyeSight to help recognize drowsy or distracted driving and will send visual and audio alerts to put driver attention back where it belongs.
With so many drivers on the road for Memorial Day, it's reassuring to know that your safety is Subaru's highest priority. That's why almost every Subaru vehicle is standard equipped with several Rear Vehicle Detection technologies to increase driver awareness. Blind-spot Detection & Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert are just a couple of the safety technologies you can depend on to enhance your driving. Whether you'll be on the road for Memorial Day weekend or any weekend, if you're in a Subaru, you'll be protected. Visit our team at Baldwin Subaru, 1730 N.
