We can all celebrate safely this Fourth of July

This Fourth of July, Americans will toast the country’s independence with friends, family and fireworks.

Before these celebrations get underway, Spriggs Distributing Co. reminds adults to show their patriotism by designating a driver or skipper to keep everyone safe.

You’ll join the millions of American adults who have been a designated driver or designated skipper, or been driven home by one.

Here are some additional tips for safe celebrating during the holiday weekend:

1. Buckle Up. Ask everyone to wear a seat belt or a life jacket,

2. Be an Attentive Driver. Always be in control and aware of those around you.

3. Don’t Speed. Resist the urge to speed by making sure there’s plenty of time to reach your destination.

4. Drink Responsibly. Adults who choose to drink should make responsible choices about when, where and how much.

Spriggs Distributing Co. is committed to keeping our nation’s roadways and waterways safe.

We offer programs to encourage the use of designated drivers and skippers. Thanks to efforts like these and increased law enforcement, drunk-driving fatalities during the Fourth of July holiday period are down 56 percent since 1982, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation.

We can all do our part to make sure everyone has a fun and safe holiday. Please, enjoy responsibly!
