Holiday travel safey tips

...with a little help from WSDOT...
Today, many of us will hit the road to begin our Labor Day Holiday. While the roadway and driving safety hazards seem to remain the same year to year, as we approach one of the deadliest travel weekends of the year, it is always a good idea to review safe procedures before you leave. Last year's Labor Day blog post provides drivers with a few great tips.

In addition, a great way to be aware of traffic issues is WSDOT's new mobile application for iPhone and Android which delivers timely travel information.

With the Labor Day holiday approaching, the Washington State Department of Transportation has made it even easier for smart-phone users to "know before you go." Smart phone users will have access to WSDOT's travel information including:
  • Canadian border wait times
  • Ferries – schedules, travel alerts and routes
  • Flickr photos
  • Mountain passes
  • Seattle traffic cameras
  • Travel times for Puget Sound highways
  • Twitter
  • WSDOT Blog

To access these apps, just search for "WSDOT" in the Android Market or in the iTunes App Store. For those who don't have access to the new mobile application, information also is available on WSDOT's website or by calling 5-1-1.
