The Fourth of July is for Celebration—Not Mourning
Posted By:

Fireworks, food, family and friends define the Fourth of July for most Americans. We love to come together to celebrate our independence and our pride in our country. But unfortunately celebration turns to tragedy far too often on this iconic American holiday.

Drinking and driving makes Fourth of July one of the deadliest holidays of the year. According to data from the NHTSA, between 2010 and 2014, 752 people were killed in drunk driving related accidents where drivers had a blood alcohol level of .08 or higher. These fatalities account for nearly 40% of all traffic-related deaths during that five-year period.

Get more information here about the risk you take when you get behind the wheel after drinking.

Play it smart this year and stay away from the driver’s seat if you’ll be drinking, choose a designated driver, or use a car or taxi service to get around.
