Totality or Bust!

Totality or bust! It’s a catching saying, but there are some hazards that can cause your solar eclipse viewing party to go bust. Drivers should plan to arrive early and stay late and park their vehicles in safe, approved areas. You shouldn’t try to view the solar eclipse while driving because it’s not safe to wear the eclipse glasses while driving, and driving while distracted can lead to dire consequence in terms of vehicle mishaps, as well as collisions with pedestrians. Also beware that communication infrastructure gets stressed when areas get overcrowded, which can disrupt your phone service. Wildlife encounters, sunburn and dehydration are a few other risks that can crash the party.
