Make sure your windshield, mirrors and other auto glass is in good shape before setting out on the road.
AAA Travel projects 34.7 million Americans will journey 50 miles or more from home during the Labor Day holiday weekend, the highest volume for the holiday since 2008 and a 1.3 percent increase over 2013. Nearly 86 percent of travelers (29.7 million) will celebrate the holiday with a final road trip before summer comes to a close and many children head back to school. Automobile travel will increase by 1.4 percent this year, with 29.7 million travelers hitting the road.
“Labor Day travel is forecast to finish the summer with a bang,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA - The Auto Club Group. “Gas prices are down and consumer spending is up, which should help generate the most travelers for the Labor Day holiday since the record setting 45 million in 2008.
When it comes to measuring travel, the weekend began yesterday and will run through Monday. If you’ve already left, we at Don’s Mobile Glass wish you a safe and fun trip. Some of us will be joining you on the road because we’re going to be closed Monday. But if you haven't gone, check your windshield and car or truck windows and mirrors to make sure there are no cracks, scratches or dings before you get on the road. If there are, give us a ring. We’ll come right over and fix you up in no time whether the ding can be repaired or a new windshield or window is needed. If you get a ding on your way to or from the Livermore Valley Harvest Wine Festival (or anywhere else, for that matter), also give us a call.
Don’s has 55-plus years’ experience serving the Central Valley area around Modesto, Merced, Turlock and Manteca. And while we do all sorts of glass – residential, commercial, shower doors, windows, custom work – auto glass was our first passion.
