Labor Day weekend 2007 produced more motor vehicle-related fatalities in Virginia (VA) than any other Labor Day in the past ten years, with 19 persons losing their lives due to someone’s alcohol consumption, speed, inattention, or inexperience. 11 people died on Virginia (VA) roads during this same weekend in 2006, while 14 were killed in car or trucking/car accidents during Memorial Day weekend 2007.
