Every Fourth of July, hundreds of people are killed in drunk driving accidents. So it’s important to have a plan if you know you’ll be at a Fourth of July party, and plan to drink.

Remember that even one drink can be too many. You should either find a sober ride home, or stay over. Have a designated driver, or use ride share apps like Uber and Lyft.

If you’re hosting a Fourth of July party, help your designated drivers out by making sure there are plenty of non-alcoholic beverages.

If you see a drunk driver on the road, make sure to call 911.
