Make Sure Your July Fourth Plans Include a Sober Driver
Buzzed Driving Is Drunk Driving
Independence Day is one of our nation’s most celebrated holidays. With plenty of backyard barbecues, picnics, and pool parties to attend, millions of Americans head out onto the roads to take part in summer festivities. Unfortunately, this celebratory holiday often turns deadly for those who decide to drink and drive. This irresponsible behavior not only endangers the driver and his or her passengers, but it also endangers thousands of others on the road. In 2015, an average of one person was killed in a drunk-driving crash every 51 minutes. This is a serious problem in our country. So this Fourth of July holiday and every day, remember: Buzzed Driving Is Drunk Driving.
During the Fourth of July holiday period, which starts at 6 p.m. Friday, June 30, and ends on Wednesday, July 5 at 5:59 a.m., make sure you plan for a safe weekend of festivities. Statistics show us that drunk driving is a deadly epidemic in our nation. In fact, in 2015, 10,265 people were killed in drunk-driving crashes—almost a third of all traffic fatalities nationwide. To put it in perspective, that’s equal to about 20 jumbo jets crashing, with no survivors. Drunk driving is scary. It can kill you, your loved ones, or a complete stranger.
