Avoid Drunken Driving on the Fourth of July

The Fourth of July period (from July 2-6) is especially dangerous for drunken driving accidents. In 2020, 493 drivers were killed in motor vehicle crashes during this period. Of those fatalities, 41% occurred in alcohol-related crashes. Consider the following tips to avoid drunken driving:

  • Plan ahead with a designated driver. If you don’t have a designated driver, use public transportation or a ride service.
  • Take your job seriously if you are a designated driver. Don’t get behind the wheel if you’ve had any alcohol.
  • Don’t let your friends drive drunk. If you see that one of your friends is drunk and planning to drive, take their keys and find them a sober ride home.

Contact local law enforcement if you see a drunken driver on the road.
