Safety tips to remember as you travel Easter weekend


As Easter weekend gets underway, you should expect to see more cars on the roads as millions of people plan to travel.

Reports have shown about 59% of people plan to spend more money on their biggest trip this spring compared to spring 2022.

If you're traveling for Easter this year, there are a few safety tips to keep in mind. According to Nationwide Insurance, be sure to research your destination in depth before you arrive. Read traveler reviews and consult with locals for information about the safest neighborhoods.

Also, safeguard your hotel despite its security. Nationwide recommends you buy a jammer, which is a portable device that slips under the door for an added layer of protection.

You can also place the "do not disturb sign" on the outside of your door, as well as keep the blinds and windows closed to give the impression that you're still in your hotel room.

Lastly, Nationwide Insurance says to keep your loved ones updated about your whereabouts by giving them a copy of your itinerary and checking in regularly.  

AAA also says due to a move by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and other major oil producers gas prices have slightly increased, with Missourians now paying about $3.18 for a gallon of unleaded fuel.
