Drunk driving and the Fourth of July

On Behalf of | Jun 15, 2018 | Car Accidents |

With the Fourth of July around the corner, many people are preparing for fireworks and family celebrations. From making plans to attend a firework display to reaching out to family members and organizing a party and celebrating the holiday, there are a number of reasons why people look forward to Independence Day. However, it is essential to bear in mind that there are certain risks during the holiday, such as an increase in the number of intoxicated drivers. There are other reasons why crashes occur over the Fourth of July as well.

Regrettably, there are some people who get in their car and take to the road after consuming alcohol at a Fourth of July party. Some may not be aware of their level of intoxication, while others recklessly show no regard for the safety of others and ignore the risks associated with driving drunk. Drugged driving is another concern during this holiday and an accident may even occur because of hectic traffic. For example, people who are scrambling to or from a firework show might be more likely to cause a crash.

If you are involved in a motor vehicle collision, you could be facing many different challenges. Aside from physical consequences (injuries, pain, etc.), the emotional and financial toll of a crash can be overwhelming. As a result, you should do your best to hold responsible a reckless driver who has shattered your life. Visit our motor vehicle crash page if you would like to read more on traffic accident injuries.
