I hope you’re having a fantastic 4th of July! Just a quick reminder to stay safe while enjoying all the festivities. I know it’s easy to get carried away with drinks on this holiday, but it’s important to be cautious. If you plan on having a few drinks, please arrange for a designated driver or consider using a taxi or Uber. It’s best to consume your drinks in moderation and avoid overindulging. Unfortunately, July 4th is the most hazardous holiday in America, with an annual average of 2,743 fatalities occurring on this day. Of those who died in alcohol-related accidents, 71% had a driver or motorcyclist with a BAC of .15 or higher. In 2019, 193 people lost their lives in motor vehicle accidents, with 40% (78) of these fatalities involving DUI or alcohol-impaired incidents. Although these statistics can be scary if we drink in moderation and have a plan about driving the 4th can be a fun and safe holiday! At A-1 Driving Schools we hope that everyone has a great 4th and stays safe!
