- Be patient and leave early. Everyone else is trying to get somewhere too so all modes of transit (planes, roads, etc) will be very busy.
- Don't drink and drive. Really. Best case scenario, you get a $10k DUI, worst case scenario you kill someone.
- Be safe on the roads (Memorial Day weekend is one of the most dangerous weekends of the year for roadway accidents).

- Finally, take into account weather alerts forecasted for this weekend.
