WASHINGTON – This July 4th holiday, the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is urging motorists to designate a sober driver if they plan to drink, and to never drive impaired, whether by alcohol, illegal drugs, or prescription or certain over-the-counter drugs that have the potential to impair drivers.
“We want all Americans to enjoy a fun and safe July 4th holiday with family and friends,” said NHTSA Deputy Administrator Heidi King. “Please celebrate safely and never, ever get behind the wheel impaired by alcohol or drugs.”
