CINCINNATI, Oh. (May 22, 2019) – More than 1.6 million Ohioans plan to travel for the unofficial start of the summer travel season and AAA wants to make sure your vehicle is roadside ready. AAA expects to rescue nearly 15,000 Ohioans during the upcoming Memorial Day holiday weekend.
The majority of Ohioans, a little over 1.5 million, will travel by automobile between Thursday, May 23 and Monday, May 27, the official five-day Memorial Day holiday travel period.
The AAA Roadside Rescue team responded to 14,440 requests for service in Ohio during the 2018 Memorial Day holiday travel period with the most common issues being vehicles that required a tow, flat tires, lockouts and battery replacements.
Travelers are advised to have their vehicles inspected by trusted repair shops, including AAA/Bob Sumerel Tire and Auto locations, before hitting the road for the holiday weekend.
“A roadside breakdown is an unpleasant experience to start a holiday vacation, says Troy Cox, AAA Bob Sumerel Tire and Auto. “Travelers are urged to take the time to prepare before taking off with a vehicle checkup to prevent these common roadside emergencies from delaying your trip.”
AAA offers the following tips to prepare for the kick off of summer travel season:
