The Fourth of July is one of the deadliest holidays of the year due to substance-impaired driving crashes. Local law enforcement will be out in full force July 3-8 seeking impaired drivers through increased sobriety checkpoints and roving and saturation patrols. No warnings. No excuses. Those who drive impaired will be arrested. Don’t risk losing your independence by choosing to drink and drive. During last year’s Fourth of July holiday weekend, 212 people were arrested for driving under the influence. In the same time period, 10 people were killed and 41 seriously injured in crashes. Impaired drivers were involved in crashes that resulted in four of the fatalities and two disabling injuries.
