Speed concerns as Peninsula prepares for increased traffic

With pent-up demand traffic expected this holiday weekend, local law enforcement offers tips and advice for arriving safely to your destination. With pandemic restrictions lifted, increased travel could impact the number of visitors to the Door Peninsula. Door County Chief Deputy Pat McCarty encourages you to drive defensively and give yourself plenty of room behind the vehicle in front of you. He says speed is one of the significant factors in highway accident fatalities.



McCarty also advises drivers to plan accordingly during the busy holiday weekend and allow plenty of time to get to your various destinations in and around Door County with the expected increase in traffic. 

Nationally, AAA reports that 37 million people are planning to travel 50 miles or farther from home.  That is an increase of 60 percent from 2020 during the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic.
