The 4th of July is a day of celebration – a time to gather with family and friends to enjoy BBQs and evening fireworks. With all the activities comes traveling by car to different events. Statistics show that Independence Day is one of the days of the year with the most vehicle crash deaths. According to the “Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS),” on average 134 deaths occur due to auto accidents on the 4th of July.
Alcohol use is the number one cause, with just under 50% of the deaths occurring during the 4th of July weekend. While drunk driving leads the statistics, speeding, reckless driving, and drowsy driving also contribute to the driving deaths during the Independence Day weekend. Exercise safety when driving and be mindful of others on the roads. If a family member or friend is tired or has had too much to drink, offer them a ride or do what you can to prevent them from getting behind the wheel. Let’s keep Orlando and our communities safe.
