Fourth of July Weekend Safety Tips
Posted on Saturday July 04, 2020
Alcohol drinkers: call designated driver, friend, ride-share service, or take cab home!
We encourage all motorists to drive sober this Fourth of July weekend and every day! To avoid being arrested or causing a crash, people who drink alcohol should rely on a designated driver, or call a friend, use a ride-share service or take a cab home. 

The NC Dept. of Transportation encourages drivers to follow these safety tips:

  • Leave early. Travel at non-peak hours and use alternative routes to avoid the heaviest traffic congestion.
  • Stay alert. Even when work is paused, you may encounter narrowed lanes, shifts in traffic and lower speed limits through work zones.
  • Be patient.
  • Don’t drive drowsy. For extended drives, take frequent breaks to remain alert.
  • Don’t drive distracted. When drivers are not focused on the road, they react slowly to traffic conditions and are more likely to be involved in a crash.
The Governor’s Highway Safety Program and more than 500 law enforcement agencies will kick off the state’s annual 4th of July anti-drunk driving campaign ‘Operation Firecracker’ with increased enforcement patrols.  ‘Operation Firecracker’ runs from June 29 through July 5.
