Every year Americans head out on our nation’s highways to celebrate the Fourth of July at picnics, parties, parades and, of course, fireworks displays. Unfortunately, for many, the celebrating includes drinking alcohol, which too often leads to drunk driving on one of the most heavily traveled holidays of the year.
In preparation for this holiday, NHTSA is hosting a Twitter chat on June 29 from 3-4 p.m. ET to remind everyone that Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving. Experts will be available to answer questions and encourage followers to plan ahead for a sober ride home. Please spread the word and encourage your followers to join us. We’ll provide stats and tips on buzzed driving prevention, as well as shareable content for them to reach out to their families and friends.
